    Preceded by a short reading, this program by speaker Jeff Strang was recorded on 3/1/09 at a regular meeting of the Humanists of Greater Portland (Oregon), or HGP -- website http://portlandhumanists.org/ Abstract: HGP member Jeff Strang was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ghana from 1980-82, serving as a secondary school teacher and rural development organizer. He was able to pay a return visit in 1990, and went again this past July. He'll show video from his recent trip: tours of some houses (check out the tiny carbon footprint!), a primary school, a secondary boarding school, drumming and dancing, and a waterfall with lots of forest bats. He interacted with some rare Ghanaian humanists, but was unable to obtain video of these elusive creatures.

      Made in Africa zeigt HandwerkerInnen, die mit ihren Berufen noch innerhalb der Traditionen stehen. Sie sind Weber, Gießer und Töpferinnen, die für den heimischen Markt produzieren. Ihre Techniken sind Jahrhunderte alt und nur mehr in wenigen Regionen Westafrikas zu finden. Importe aus China und Europa haben viele zum aufgeben gezwungen, doch die Besonderheiten lokaler Kundenwünsche haben auch Betriebe überleben lassen, die mit alten Methoden bis heute ihr Überleben sichern. Der Film Made in Africa hat sie noch einmal dokumentiert, bevor auch sie die Marktplätze für fremde Billigprodukte räumen werden.

        • One Day Tafo VOD


          from Erik Knudsen / Added

          Through the intimacy of a personal perspective, we are taken to Tafo, a small town in the Akim area of Ghana. This was where the filmmaker spent his early childhood, before moving to Denmark with the family at the age of five.The family situation in Tafo provides a strikingly effective micro-cosmic view of the general transition from the Colonial to the modern world. This view is then re-enforced by the reaction of the filmmaker to his early childhood home, after nearly thirty years.
