Seeking global acclaim and much-needed commissions, Ghananian artist Paa Joe and his apprentice son Jacob bring fantasy coffin carving to the UK. Sharing the unfettered spirit of Ga funeral celebrations, they invite people to reclaim the mystery of death as an integrated, vibrant part of the circle of life. The two leave home for a month-long residency to demonstrate the high art of hand carving a lion coffin. Their presence causes people to wonder about their own tradition of staid and stoic funerals—and to talk openly about death and ancestors. The coffins have incredible ephemeral beauty then are buried or, in this case, ritually paraded. The final ceremony includes dancers, puppeteers, musicians and singers who mix local pagan flavor with the Ga tradition of full-hearted life and death. Imaginative dream sequences, soulful poetry by Benjamin Zephania and lively music make for artful filmmaking about the universal rites of passage.
