The work of Ghanaian-American filmmaker Akosua Adoma Owusu explores the colliding identities of black immigrants in America through multiple forms ranging from cinematic essays to experimental narratives to reconstructed black popular media. Join Owusu for a screening and moderated discussion of her recent work in the Edlis Neeson Theater.

Akosua Adoma Owusu (b. 1984) is a Ghanaian-American filmmaker, producer, and cinematographer whose films address the collision of identities. Owusu's films have screened internationally in festivals like International Film Festival Rotterdam, Locarno International Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, New Directors/New Films Festival and the BFI London Film Festival. Her work is included in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Centre Georges Pompidou, the Fowler Museum at UCLA and the Black Film Center/Archive at Indiana University Bloomington.

MCA Screenings feature experimental works of contemporary cinema and are organized by Assistant Curator of Public Programs Christy LeMaster.
