‘The theatre is a lie; the thing to do is to bring it
as close as possible to the greatest truthfulness.
The theatre is a painting; the thing to do is to make
this painting useful by making it accessible to the
greatest number of people so that the picture
which it presents will serve to link men together…’
Sebastian Mercier Janet Wilson is a young English woman living in a rapidly changing post-independence Ghana with Fenyinka, her Ghanaian husband. Like a duck to water, Janet is settling down nicely as an immigrant in this West African country until the day she crosses paths with John Owusu, a Ghanaian who has a few bones to pick with white people since an experience he had as a student in Britain.
Through a Film Darkly asks if it is ever possible for an immigrant, white or black, not to be made feel like an ‘inside outsider’ in a foreign land.
