Paa Joe and The Lion

Paa Joe and The Lion

Paa Joe dreams of his bygone days, bringing money home in briefcases and work being shipped to galleries the world over. Now, he sleeps as the cars hurtle passed. There are no customers, no tourists and no coffins to make. His son, Jacob, dreams too, he dreams of returning his father to his glory days and rebuilding the family legacy together. Over the next four years they stand side-by-side, conquering love and death and embracing a life changing opportunity to travel to the UK to undertake an artist residency. It is the start of their future together — master and son. Paa Joe & The Lion.

Paa Joe & The Lion premiered at Sheffield DocFest 2016 and is currently on an international festival tour.
