Joseph Arthur Boateng, Ghana’s youngest and celebrated film director, is making laudable strides and his latest work titled ‘‘African Diaspora’’, has been recognised by the International Film Festival Awards in Los Angeles.
‘'African Diaspora’', by Ghana’s youngest film director Joseph Boateng has been recognized by movie experts and judges in United Kingdom and the United States.
While he did not study any media related course in school, Joseph has attained this feat regardless.
Prior to becoming a film director, he worked as a crew member for founder of Kofas Media, Kofi Asamoah, famous for his comic movie ‘Away Bus’, which was produced in collaboration with Old Film.
From the backstage, he has evolved to take a leading role to direct what the cameras capture.
Shortly after he parted with his formal employer he took on the challenge and currently has a short film and a documentary to his name.
His latest documentary titled ‘African Diaspora’ was endorsed by the office of the UK Prime Minister during Black History Month.
The documentary was also selected by several film festivals in The UK and USA, alongside his short film titled ‘Rising Star’, which will be screened this June 2019 in Dallas Texas America at the African Film Festival 2019.
As a young producer, Joseph is working in collaboration with young-minded people on his projects as part of efforts to inspire young peeps and transfer skills to them.
He has been working on his short film, 'Rising Star' with another young female film director, Danielle Atakora, 23.
The two are collaborated for their latest project to bring Ghanaian films into international spotlight.
