In 2013 and 2017, the Bernese documentary duo Peter Guyer and Thomas Burckhalter travels to Ghana, where rap is bursting with ideas and cheeky scenarios for the future in which money is collected in the streets of Accra for impoverished America. Pleasure in nonsense, political provocation and frustration over stagnation go hand in hand in the musical, cinematic and verbal interventions of the Fokn Bois, the young pop queen Adooma, the rapper Akan and his colleagues, breaking out of post-colonial vicious circles and the vision of a self-confident new Africa form the common tenor, impressions from everyday life in the pulsating metropolis serve as the visual beat: an ear- and eye-opener.

Contradict ist mehr als eine Musikdoku, weil es den Filmemachern auch um das Ringen einer intellektuellen Szene mit ihrem Kontinent geht. Zwar ist sie sich des kulturellen Reichtums Afrikas bewusst, die Verzweiflung über das Versagen der Politik lauert aber hinter jeder Liedzeile. Ein faszinierender Film, der zeigt, was Ghanas Kulturschaffende bewegt.
