York-Fabian Raabe, the director of the African refugee tragedy Between Heaven and Earth and the Ghanaian e-waste documentary Children of Sodom, both short films, is putting the finishing touches to his feature debut, Borga. The drama will tell the story of Kojo and Yoofi, two brothers who grow up on the electronic waste dump in Ghana’s capital of Accra and earn their living by extracting marketable metals from discarded Western electronic devices. When Kojo meets a Borga, a rich Ghanian from abroad, he starts wishing he could leave the country. Ten years later, he pursues his dream, and after travelling for another four years, he reaches Germany. Although disappointed by the way in which he is treated in this new country, he is unwilling to go back to his family without being able to prove that he has succeeded in becoming a Borga.
