English

An African family, lost in America, travels to a Louisiana church to cure its problem child.

BONESHAKER follows a Ghanaian immigrant family taking a road trip to a Pentecostal church in Louisiana to cure its problem child. As the family journeys to a tent revival at the ends of the levee-less Louisiana delta, they discover the complications of trying to perform a traditional ritual away from home. BONESHAKER focuses on the feelings of homelessness, landlessness, and rootlessness that accompany immigration.

BONESHAKER is my Second-Year Film at the prestigious NYU Tisch School of the Arts Graduate Film Program. This is a personal, autobiographical story in which I finally get to put years of learning into a project that exemplifies my unique experiences of home and self.
