Gbonyo Party (Dead Person’s Party) short film is inspired by a song of the name by Ghanaian musician Marince Omario. It touches on the theatricality and nuances of Ghanaian funerals, burial culture, love, and life cycle. It is a visual introspection of what it means to be alive and, subsequently, dead.
