Pastor Paul

Pastor Paul

Synopsis

PASTOR PAUL is a feature film about a white tourist in West Africa who is possessed by a ghost after acting in a Nollywood movie. PASTOR PAUL explores the remarkable confluence of New African Cinema, Christianity and Witchcraft, undermining the classic symbolic imagery of the "white man in Africa," whether he be tourist, missionary, actor, or ghost. Filmed in Ghana and Nigeria in 2013 on a micro-budget, PASTOR PAUL was the result of a guerilla-style international co-production with Pidgen Films. PASTOR PAUL is the first American Nollywood film, an homage to the spirit - and spirits - of Nollywood's self-determined narratives.
