‘The Burial of Kojo’ longlisted for Golden Globe Awards



'The Burial of Kojo' to screen at Kumasi Film Festival this Easter.

‘The Burial of Kojo’ might have narrowly missed Ghana’s selection for the 2020 Academy Awards (Oscars) but the film is being considered for the Best Foreign Language Film nomination at the 2020 Golden Globes.

Blitz Bazawuke, also known as Blitz the Ambassador’s critically-acclaimed directorial debut is the first Ghanaian film to be considered for nomination in the Golden Globes.

The musician, writer and director took to Twitter to share the news along with a picture of the list of contenders for the Golden Globe’s “Best Foreign Language Film” award, which also includes Senegal’s Atlantics (which is also in the running to become the first Senegalese film nominated for an Oscar) and Malawi’s The Boy Who Harnessed Wind. Ninety-five films from 65 different countries are being considered for nomination in the category.
