The film, “An African-American Quest for Authenticity” is an insightful and engaging documentary of just 21 of the over 5,000 African-Americans who have repatriated to Ghana within the last 30+ years.  Could this 21st Century migration be linked to their continuing quest to live a self-fulfilling, self-determining, and authentic life in Africa?

The film attempts to capture the true spirit, challenges and joys of these repatriates as they live their authentic lives reconnecting to the Motherland — Africa.
