Elsie Obeng Kwakye
Edwen, Grey Hair: Blessing or Curse, tells the plight of six less privileged aging women from a shantytown in Accra and the Gambaga witches camp. The documentary touches on the lives of these women from childhood through adulthood and narrows it down to their present situations as less privileged aging women living in a developing country. Also, it digs down into that ugly part of culture, that has put the lives of some of these women in danger: infringing on their basic human rights and how some of these women have lived decades in fear in this 21st century and have left several others on the run (fleeing from their homes) and displaced.
