Mr Graham

Here's a short film brought to our attention, courtesy of S&A reader Emmanuel Tetteh, that seems to be getting a lot of buzz lately.

Titled Mr. Graham, it's by Ghanaian-British filmmaker Julius Amedume and tackles controversial subject matter in a very subtle, yet very effective, way. The film stars Alexis Rodney, Danny Bedford, Fabrizo Santino, Caroline Lazarus, Nakeba Buchanan, Ani St-Aimie, Mehmet Abdi, Natalie Lesser and Jake Hughson. Amedume is no stranger to the film world having received film festival acclaim for a few of his short films including Best Short Film for Precipice at this year's Pan African Film Festival and Best Feature Award at the 15th Pan African Film Festival for his 2006 film A Goat's Tail. Precipice (starring Jimmy Jean-Louis) also received a nomination for the African Movie Academy Award (AMAA), the African Oscar, and took home the Best Diaspora Short Film. It's currently being made into a feature. A brief description for Mr. Graham, courtesy of Carmen McCain from allAfrica.com, states:

Mr Graham (Alexis Rodney) remembers the legacy left by his father who “died when I was too old to forget.” As he travels home at night watching a train slither over the tracks and into the darkness, his father’s spirit blossoms and grows in him. The next day as he goes about his daily duties, he struggles with a secret obsession that threatens the life he had hoped to build.

To check out his additional short films that he's made available to the public, please go HERE.
