Who Killed Maggie?
8 minutes fragment from a work HDV
Named for the book which inspired it, this work traces the history of land tenancy, tribal rights and the privatization of resources in Ghana, during the 2007 jubilee, marking the 50th anniversary of Ghana's independence. Made in collaboration with the Ada tribe in Bonikopey, this fragment is a theatrical re-enactment of the deadly conflict between the traditional salt winners of the Songor Lagoon and the foreign-owned Vacuum Salt Company.
