An African Election
An African Election

In 2008, Ghana held its fifth presidential election since democracy was reintroduced in 1992.

With sparks of violence and accusations of corruption tainting past elections, the eyes of the world turned to see if Ghana could sustain its experiment in democracy.

Given unprecedented access from campaign to ballot box, Merz invites audiences into this frenzied political race.

An African Election unwinds with the terse pacing of a political thriller, revealing the human frailty, spirit and faith that fuel the political machine.
