German movie where Christmas takes place at a psychiatric treatment centre. Plot: It's Christmas, the time of peace and family gatherings. Not so for four teenage girls and boys, Lara, Alexandra, Timo and Fedja, nor for Dr Wolf, whose charges they are in an adolescent psychiatric treatment centre. It transpires during the therapy sessions, painful for everyone concerned, that the conflicts which the youngsters face are rooted in their respective family histories. The Christmas celebrations at the centre contain happy and unhappy surprises - yet, in spite of a bitter failure, there is hope. Directed by Theresa von Eltz. Free entry.

Thought-provoking exhibition at the Nubuke Foundation by Dorothy Amenuke. Amenuke uses recycled materials for her work, such as jute sacks and cocoa bark. An exhibition for everybody.

A dramatic and mesmerising exhibition everyone must go and see - where hundreds of cement-cast heads, created by Kwame Akoto-Bamfo, eerily lay all over the site's grounds. The installation includes 1,300 sculptures all facing the Atlantic Ocean. It is a symbolic tribute to the ancestors of Ghana as well as a cultural symbol for the nation’s contribution to the development of the western world. Moreover, the exhibition gives a historic visualisation to the Middle Passage. The Exhibition features several great artists of The Ancestor Project, including Kwame Akoto-Bamfo, Nii Kwartei Quartey (who is the lead artist apprentice) and project photographers, Naa Abina Nelson and Nii Odzenma. The exhibition is on until 16 September 2017.
Sochara is a Dagaare word from the Dagaare speaking people in the Upper West Region of Ghana. It literally means "Junction".
