Synopsis by Zach Atreiu Pinpin

Sakawa is a documentary about a group of three young people from Ghana and their alternative source of income. As there is a huge amount of discarded electronics and computers around the area, these three extract and obtain personal photos, addresses, and any information left on them to scam and exploit people online. This documentary shows their methods and how their culture and economy has driven them to more nefarious means. Directed and written by Ben Asamoah.
