Ganja and Hess
This extraordinary foray into the realms of Black consciousness has acquired deserved status as a cinema classic. The vampire film genre is used to create a mythical vision of the forces that shape Dr. Hess Green, a wealthy recluse driven to enact a ritual. Ganja discovers his bloody curse, becomes his enemy and lover, and emerges from the conflicts that ultimately destroy Hess. This film draws on the conflict between Christian myth and African spirituality, sanity and survival in a culture rife with saints and monsters.
