Two Ghanaian musicians Yaw P and Temple recently produced a short documentary, titled Acropolis, directed by Breadnyf of Third eye production. The film was based on their 2016 released EP music project also dubbed Acropolis and recently won a Best Film Award at the Urban Film Festival.
The documentary takes you behind the scenes and walks viewers through the creative process, influence and other enlightening factors that gave life to their music.
The documentary won the overall BEST FILM from Africa out of over 40 entries and was part of the 40 films out of 500 films selected worldwide to compete at the final show in Paris. An international gathering of urban film and film industry experts sharpening skills of young filmmakers while allowing them to showcase their masterpieces.
Acropolis will give rise to more creative music in Ghana and Africa as a whole, which will encourage artists to take unconventional approaches to gain exposure for their art.
The EP project produced in Ghana, birthed the Acropolis documentary. It is a vibe; a fusion of genres circulated for the world, totally disparate from the usual way music is expressed in Ghana.
“Ghanaian music has a void and lacks a sense of direction, thus the need for something new, a unique sound with authenticity. The reason for Acropolis,” says Yaw P.
The artists shared, the Acropolis project is for everyone and is purposed to push the concepts in their music videos along with an overall promotion of the songs, artists, brand and Ghanaian culture.
The Acropolis concept, is an organic piece of art with a quest to push the envelope on how art is expressed. The artists plan to release Acropolis II in the near future.
