Ghana - A report

UK, 1969 (MIFF 1970, Man and Society)

Director: Peter Hopkinson

Aid given to developing countries over many years is now seen to be largely ineffective. This film examines a more “realistic" approach in the form of investment from overseas, to which a country such as Ghana may hope for support.
