Bob Geldof visited Ghana for the TV series Geldof in Africa and wrote about it in the accompanying book, describing his crowning as the Chief of Development in a town called Ajumako-Bisease. This documentary followed in Geldof’s footsteps one year on, and found a town still waiting to hear from him. A timely reflection on the meaning of promises, the role of celebrity, and the true impact of “awareness campaigns” that leave those we are meant to better understand with nothing but shattered dreams. This film, released in full here, was completed in 2007 and caused a huge stir. It was covered and reviewed across the mainstream press and considered quite an expose.
