Inhalt

Anansi
From Ghana to a deserted coast - from Morocco to Spain - out of desperate need, a group of West Africans dare the perilous journey to Germany. But their path to the promised land of satellite dishes and a better life is strewn with obstacles.
In West Africa, the name "Anansi" means spider - a well-loved trickster.
This ancient mythical character represents the survival strategies of a
people who secure a future for themselves in spite of the most
repulsive conditions.
The main character - Zaza - is played by
George Quaye, Ghana′s much adored womanizer in the weekly soap Taxi.
His friend Sir Francis - the wise cracker - is played by Maynard
Eziashi, who earned a Silver Bear at Berlin in 1992 for Mister Johnson
and also starred in the film Ace Ventura. Reggae superstar Shaggy
supported the project from the beginning and contributed the title song
Why Me Lord. Roman Bunka′s vivid soundtrack carries the spirit of this
road movie - oscillating between laughter and tears. Anansi is an
odyssey full of wonders and sacrifices, African mystic and a love that
surpasses all borders.
