BRIEF BIO OF MD, DAVID A. MASTERWILLE
I am a filmmaker from Ghana, a beautiful, rhythmic country on the west coast of Africa. My home is close to the Greenwich Meridian (Longitude 0°) and a short boat ride out into the sea is the Equator (Latitude 0°). So, like many of my compatriots, we like to say that we live right at the center of the world.
However, this rapidly modernizing country has many social problems, chiefly among them is a widening inequality. So, for a number of years now, I have been making films that shed light on some of these issues.
In 2012, I released my first narrative feature “The Most Beautiful Hour” that touched on the lingering crisis of graduate unemployment in Ghana. In 2014, I was supported by the Ghana Denmark Cultural Fund to produce a documentary on unregulated gold mining in Ghana called “Gold Is Here”. I sought to find out…if Gold were really here in abundance, why then were there so much poverty and suffering and misery and hopelessness in these communities where tonnes of gold were mined?
“Gold Is Here” screened at festivals in Africa, Europe and America. It won award for best documentary at a film award in Ghana in 2016.
The film is still screening publicly with two screenings booked in August 2018 at Goethe Institut’s African Perspective program, and Nubuke Foundation’s Ghana Must Go: Forward program. The Danish Ambassador hosted a successful screening for the Embassy staff, the Danish Community in Ghana, and CSOs from the extractive sector.
In 2016, I produced Gilberte’s World in Mauritius. This brilliant feature documentary about the painful exploration of an artist’s life on the Indian Ocean paradise was 100% financed by myself. Gilberte’s World has had a successful festival run including at the Durban International Film Festival, Zanzibar and AfryKamera.
I am currently working on my third documentary film “Scapegoats”, which has been supported by the Institute Francaise of the French Embassy and the Ghana Culture Forum.
