Guldkysten (Daniel Dencik, DK/GH/SE, 2015)

The year is 1836. Danish botanist and visionary, Wulff Fredrik Wulff, travels to Africa following orders from the king of Denmark. He is to monitor the work at a coffee plantation on the Gold Coast (now Ghana). The young Wulff writes about his desire to do good to his beloved Eleonora, but his best intentions and Christian belief is soon confronted with a harsh reality dominated by slave trade and unbelievable brutality.
