Jules David Bartkowski directed this indie comedy, which gets a lot of mileage out of his performance as a bumbling math geek. Traveling to Ghana to study the rhythms of its traditional music, he gets cast in a ramshackle movie version of Hamlet (the filmmakers need a pale white guy to play the ghost), but the pressures of guerrilla filmmaking are too much for him and he seeks out local healers to restore his soul. As a student, Bartkowski worked for a touring theatrical revue in Ghana, and his affection for West Africa is evident here. His send-up of the region's fly-by-night cinema shares some of its energy, but the movie could have used a tighter script and less improvisation.
