A city versus village tale of classical beauty, Nakom is the story of a medical student who returns to his remote village in Ghana following the death of his father. Jacob Ayanaba, in a striking debut, plays a young man of talent and promise who’s torn between the lure of the urban dream and the pressing duties of assuming the patriarchal role in a rural family on the brink of ruin. Beautifully shot in widescreen compositions that capture the fickle weather of the Ghanaian countryside in both its fertile splendor and the barren cruelty of the dry season, Nakom is both timeless and modern — and at once culturally specific and universal.  ~LB
