Message from the Deputy Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts
THE GHANA-DANISH STORY
The Ghana-Danish story has been woven very intricately by the collaboration between INGENIUS AFRICA and HASLUND-DENCIK ENTERTAINMENT into this beautiful and historic piece of art.
I recall, that barely three months after I was appointed Deputy Minister for Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Kwame Boadi, walked into my office to apprise me with the details of the collaboration to tell this story. I recall also that I appealed to Kwame and his team to let the story capture the Ghanaian culture and traditional values in its purity. We discussed the need to use this platform to promote and project this beautiful country of ours.
We have been concerned about the image of Africa as a whole and Ghana in particular in the media around the world. We agreed that we needed to use this medium to celebrate and promote Tourism, Culture and the Creative people in Ghana. To this end, the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, opened its doors to its agencies to the team.
I am delighted that these have come home in this film. On behalf of the Government and the people of Ghana I would like to thank everybody who helped to make this production complete. The journey of this film has just started. It is not late to come on board with your support as individuals and as corporate Ghana. The film GOLD COAST captures Ghana in the past in a tasteful way for Ghana today and the future.
Ayekoo! Ayekoo! Ayekoo to the team!
