“Like Cotton Twines” by Ghanaian filmmaker, Leila Djansi, will premiere at the 2016 LA Film Festival. The fictional screenplay focuses on the real life practice of sex slavery in Ghana known as Trokosi.

International Needs Ghana has been successfully freeing young girls and women from villages where fetish priests still practice even though the custom was outlawed by the Ghanaian government in 1998. The video at right provides an overview of what International Needs Ghana has been doing for over 25 years to transform lives and change communities plagued by Trokosi.

We congratulate Leila Djansi for her film work being honored at the LA Film Festival, and thank her for sharing this important story with the world. To learn more about Ms. Djansi and her impressive film career, visit her Facebook page here.
