is a domestically and internationally aimed production company that focuses on producing quality content for commercial clientele and feature film distribution. At Sankofa Pictures we are committed to building a sustainable and profitable motion picture company by creating quality projects to travel the globe and produce films to rival the best. Our goal is to introduce our style which depends on creating exceptional stories that combine aesthetics, wit, intelligence and imagination all wrapped up in a unique international style.
The word Sankofa is derived from the Akan words; SAN (return), KO (go), FA (look, seek and take). This symbolizes one’s quest for knowledge with the implication that the quest is based on critical examination, intelligence and patient investigation. We treat every project, small or big with this philosophy as our backbone.
Sankofa is currently working on her feature film debut based on her 2007 short, ‘Mourning Motives’. We hope our feature, ‘Killing Harry’ will introduce our audience to original stories as well as a visually stimulating work of art. We also have other international projects in the works so stay tuned for updates
