Anas Aremeyaw Anas

Anas Aremeyaw Anas is an acclaimed, award-winning Ghanaian investigative journalist (print and documentary), famous for using his anonymity (he does not show his face in public, opting for masks and disguises) as a tool in his investigative reports that usually tackle human rights and anti-corruption issues in sub-saharan Africa.

His lauded investigative works (at times potentially life-threatening) have made him an internationally-known figure, so much that in a 2009 visit to Ghana, President Obama spoke of Anas and his contributions to journalism and the causes he fights for, in a speech.

And now, Anas will be the center of an upcoming feature documentary from director Ryan Mullins, titled Chameleon which will take audiences deep undercover with one of continental Africa's most famed investigative reporters, to watch him in action, dispatching his own brand of brazen journalism.

I'm sure we still won't get to see his face.

Directo Mullins is a Montreal-based filmmaker, director, editor and cinematographer, whose last work was one he shot and directed, titled Volta (about a derelict cinema in rural Ghana), which premiered at the 2009 Toronto International film festival and South by Southwest in the US.

He was awarded the Scholarship for International Development Journalism by the IDRC and nominated for the Bell Fund’s "Ten to Watch" in new media.

The aptly-titled Chameleon is the recipient of a development grant from the Sundance Institute.

Nothing to see yet, in terms of clips or stills. But watch the 30-minute work below from Anas himself, which "examines activities of the state owned Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) to bring forward a prolonged list of companies and people owing it."
