On a sunny day in Ghana, a foreigner approaches two children and takes them on an unexpected trip. The three of them get along so well that “Bogah”, the foreigner, starts to question his initial intentions.
Anthony Nti (1992) was born in Ghana and moved to Belgium when he was about 10 years old. He studied film at the Royal Institute for Theatre, Cinema and Sound in Brussels and became part of a colourful artistic scene, doing commercials and music videos. His video Black Magic, shot for the rapper Yung Mavu, got over 20 million views. Da Yie won the Grand Prix at the 42nd International Film Festival Clermont Ferrand.
