Sankofa (1993)

  • Kofi Ghanaba
  • Oyafunmike Ogunlano
  • Alexandra Duah
A self-absorbed Black American fashion model on a photo shoot in Africa is spiritually transported back to a plantation in the West Indies where she experiences first-hand the physical and psychic horrors of chattel slavery, and eventually the redemptive power of community and rebellion as she becomes a member of a freedom-seeking Maroon colony.
