From HIPC dustbins to HIPC toilets, debt relief is not just peanuts but ties Ghana to a Western-inspired agenda and parenting classes. Damned by donor diktat, for Ghanaians it’s a raw deal. After the Live8-G8 bonanza, many assumed debt cancellation for indebted poor countries was great news. Was it? Have we been hood-winked? This short doc aims to set the record straight. Debt relief was never a new deal, there was no new money involved and worse than colonial conditions applied to so called "debt forgiveness". Shot in Ghana by a talented young volunteer crew, this film forms part of the "Pricking the Missionary Position" series. The series aims to turn the tables on the Live 8-G8 "pity-fest" and last year’s Kiplingesque re-run of the "white man’s burden".
