Paa Joe & The Lion
Director: Benjamin Wigley
Running Time: 72′
Paa Joe, the so-called ‘Grandfather of the Fantasy Coffin Trade’, is the creator of ornate, enormous and spectacular coffins in his native Ghana. A master craftsman lauded throughout the country, he has nevertheless fallen on hard times, with his trade less popular than it once was. Despite this, Joe’s son is a passionate supporter of his father’s work, and dreams of the two of them working together hand-in-hand. When they are invited to participate in an artist’s residency in England, it feels like a new chapter in their lives, and in Joe’s career: a chance to bond and become a family business: Paa Joe & The Lion.
