Akosua Adoma Owusu
1984–

Introduction

Akosua Adoma Owusu (born January 1, 1984) is a Ghanaian-American filmmaker and producer. Her films explore the colliding identities of black immigrants in America through multiple forms ranging from cinematic essays to experimental narratives to reconstructed Black popular media. Interpreting the notion of "double consciousness," coined by sociologist and civil rights activist W. E. B. Du Bois, Owusu aims to create a third cinematic space or consciousness. In her work, feminism, queerness, and African identities interact in African, white American, and black American cultural spaces.

She is currently a Visiting Lecturer at Harvard University and the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York.
