Ghanaian lead actor and multiple award winner, Majid Michel, has been invited to give a lecture at the University of Louisville, Kentucky USA on Friday September 30th, 2011. The lecture titled “On Being An Actor in the African Film Industry”, will be delivered under the auspices of the Department of Pan African Studies, which is a department at the University of Louisville where courses on African culture, history, film and politics are taught at both undergraduate and graduate levels. The event is also being co-sponsored by several University departments and institutes, including the Muhammad Ali Institute for Peace and Justice, the Commonwealth Center for the Humanities & Society, & the Commission on Diversity and Racial Equality.
In the lecture, Majid Michel will discuss the fascinating history of the video filmmaking in Ghana and elsewhere in Africa, how acting and technical talent has developed over the years, as well as the financial and technical challenges that filmmakers have to overcome to market their work. The lecture will be preceded by a screening of the award-winning film, Somewhere in Africa, and is expected to draw a diverse audience of professors, students, members of the Ghanaian Association of Louisville, the larger City of Louisville community, Indiana, and beyond. There will be a Question & Answer session after the lecture, followed by a party to be hosted by the African Students Union and Pan African Graduate Students Association.
