SHORT TAKES

Emmanuel's Gift

Director: Lisa Lax and Nancy Stern
Language: English

Emmanuel's Gift
Emmanuel's Gift

Though born in Ghana, West Africa, where physical handicap is regarded as a curse and disabled people are often left to die or tend for themselves, Emmanel Ofosu Yeboah, who was born with a deformed right leg, lived his life differently. He bicycled 600 km across Ghana, competed in a triathlon in America, and became a national hero. This documentary follows Emmanuel as he energetically campaigns to improve the lives of disabled people in Ghana. The film breaks no new ground, but Emmanuel's natural glow and charisma are inspiring.
