ALL ON BOARD 6 short films about social exclusion and marginalisation
by filmmakers from Ghana, Sierra Leone, and Liberia (2018)

Slide - Mahzouba Maya Faal, The Gambia “In Africa, there are a lot of stories that don’t get told. And many voices that don’t get heard.”
Slide - Matilda Dogbatsey, Ghana “I don’t have a university degree. My WELTFILME certificate is my professional qualification.” Slide - G-Othello Zordyu, Liberia “In Liberia, there’s no major TV station, no local film industry and, above all, no educational opportunities for young people to learn film. I want to inform and train the next generation.” Slide - Luther N. Mafalleh, Liberia “WELTFILME gave me the confidence to do things
in my own way.”
Slide - Luther N. Mafalleh, Liberia “Film and television are such powerful tools for drawing
the public’s attention to
important social issues.”
Slide - Luther N. Mafalleh, Liberia “WELTFILME has opened doors
for me that I didn’t even know existed.”
Slide - Fatou Ndure, The Gambia “The first days of the workshop were such an amazing experience. There was so much to take in, so many things to learn.” Slide - Alex Asare, Ghana “WELTFILME — they’re just really good. They’re wonderful people. And they’ve got to keep doing this.” Slide - Alex Asare, Ghana “Most of the media focuses only on the ugly parts of Africa — on war and disasters. I want people to see the real Africa.” Slide - Matilda Dogbatsey, Ghana “My training with WELTFILME helped me, as a woman, to assert myself in a male-dominated profession.”

COME, I’LL SHOW YOU

THOSE ON THE MARGINS

They’re everywhere, but they are so often overlooked, ignored, silenced. In every country, you find people living on the margins of society. In the six films from ALL ON BOARD, we finally come to hear their voices, as marginalised people from Ghana speak about their fate, but also their hopes to once again become part of society.
&nsbp;
These fictional and documentary films were created by 31 filmmakers from Ghana, Sierra Leone, and Liberia, twelve of whom had previously trained as film instructors. The twelve instructors taught filmmaking to the others during a ten-day workshop and then supported them throughout production.

In all three countries, the film instructors later went on to run further film workshops independently.
&nsbp;
The ALL ON BOARD films are available on DVD and have been shown on television and in pop-up cinema tours in Ghana, Sierra Leone, and Liberia. They have also received screenings at numerous festivals.
