Ortis Must Go! A sequel to British Ghanaians: Lost In Translation

Remember ‘British Ghanaians: Lost In Translation’, the feature-length investigative documentary in which Ortis Deley (The Gadget Show, Channel 5) explored the root causes of language endangerment within the the Ghanaian community in London? Well the director, writer and producer Pamela Sakyi is planning a sequel and she needs your help.

Ortis Must Go! is a campaign to help take one man on a journey of self-discovery and cultural preservation, through appreciation for his mother’s language, Twi, a colourful language which comes from Ghana. The sequel will be filmed in Ghana and will address the following issues:

  • Opportunities for Ghanaian language learners (jobs, contributions to the economy etc.)
  • The effects of the current education system on fluency
  • What native Ghanaians think about the fluency problem within the diaspora

Ortis will also have the opportunity to rediscover his roots more deeply and find out just how important knowing the languages are, for people of Ghanaian descent. Pamela and her team need to raise £6000 by the campaign deadline of APRIL 30th 2017.
