Ghana Possessed • Ghana - Die Besessenen • Les Possédés Du Ghana

Ghana Possessed leads us straight to the heart of a contemporary African religion. In Ghana, possession and trance play a central role in the interaction with the divine. Enamoured gods haunt young women for weeks or possess them
violently in the streets.

And in the Pentecostal churches pastors are taking up Christianity’s millennia-old battle against the spirits of tradition. With intensely raw and naturally dramatic footage, the film offers a rare insight into a world in which gods and men meet in the flesh, to make love, to fight and to marry each other.
