Boneshaker: Interview with Frances Bodomo

Posted Tuesday 15 Nov 2011

We came across this HerFilm interviewrecently with Nuotama Frances Bodomo, a Ghanaian filmmaker based in New York City. She grew up on four continents-in Ghana, Norway, California, and Hong Kong-before moving to New York to attend Columbia University as a Kluge Scholar, and received her B.A. in English Literature and Film Studies in 2010. Her thesis focused on making African-generated images part of the popular image of Africa.
Currently about to start work on a short film based on some of her experiences as an African woman and a nomad, Bodomo's ultimate goal is to make conceptually strong films that bring African images to the forefront. She is currently an MFA Candidate and Dean's Fellow at NYU's Graduate Film Programme.
