Nakom by Rasquaché Film Productions

Nakom– A Ghanaian student’s vision of his future takes a sudden turn after his father’s death. Obligation and ambition clash in modern Africa.

From two years living and working in Nakom, Ghana, to crafting an authentic and ambitious script, to the hard fight for production financing, to shooting-the-impossible-shoot over more than 2 months in a village with no electricity – a feat made possible ONLY through the teamwork of hundreds of Nakom’s villagers and our small, determined crew – our dream of the feature film NAKOM has been 8 years in the making, and is now in the home stretch!
