Worlds Apart, a short film by Yehoda Adukwei Hammond, a 19-year third-year film directing student at the National Film and Television Institute (NAFTI) in Ghana has made the top 10 of the Ladima Film Competition.
Worlds Apart is a story of two friends Rhema and Erica, both Junior high school students whose education has been interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. The differences in their economic situations have directly altered the course of their education and how they cope with the current times.
Currently interning as a Second Assistant director with Esse Productions, Yehoda Adukwei Hammond gained a keen interest in social issues occurring in her country, with a soft spot for girl child education.
Worlds Apart and 9 other short films from selective creatives around Africa will PREMIERE via a live stream on July 10th 2020 and then be available for viewing on various platforms from July 11th.
The short film competition invited African women to share their stories about the personal, economic, and social impact of Covid-19 in Africa.
