Pastor Paul tells the story of a white tourist in West Africa who is possessed by a ghost after acting in a Nollywood movie.
Filmed in Ghana and Nigeria in 2013, Pastor Paul, has come this far on a budget of less than $10,000 - the result of a guerilla-style production in collaboration with the premier avant-garde arts collective in Ghana, Pidgen Unlimited. Pastor Paul explores the remarkable confluence of New African Cinema, Christianity & Witchcraft; and undermines the classic imagery of the “white man in Africa,” whether tourist, missionary, actor, or ghost.
The editing process has been a labor of love shared by Director Jules David Bartkowski and Director of Photography Adam Abada over the last year and has reached its conclusion. The final stages of the process are Sound Design and Color Correction -- both require technical skills and are rather costly. We are already involved with companies well-suited to these tasks and our current goal is to find a way to pay these specialized artists what they deserve in order to make this the film it is meant to be.
We hope you join us for a funky night of Arthouse Afrobeat, Gypsy Hip-Hop, and a sneak peek at Pastor Paul’s wild ride!
