2018 Cinedelphia Film Festival presents
PAA JOE & THE LION — Philadelphia Premiere
(Dir. Benjamin Wigley, 2016, UK/Ghana, 74 min)

The Grandfather of Ghana’s Fantasy Coffin trade gets the documentary treatment in this critically-acclaimed festival favorite.

Paa Joe dreams of his bygone days — bringing money home in briefcases and work being shipped to galleries the world over. Now, he sleeps as the cars hurtle passed. There are no customers, no tourists — there are no coffins to make. His son, Jacob, dreams too, he dreams of returning his father to his glory days and rebuilding the family legacy together. Over the next four years they stand side-by-side, conquering love and death and embracing a life changing opportunity to travel to the UK to undertake an artist residency. It is the start of their future together — master and son…Paa Joe & The Lion.
