What do Ghanaian movies say?

I watched a Nigerian film last night and was impressed by its bold attempt to address a serious issue - the caste sysyem that exists in parts of the country. In that system a group of people, similar to their Indian counterparts are described and condemned as outcasts.

It just ocurred to me that Ghanain movies are not addressing the big social, economic and political issues of the day. Even the old formula of boy-meets-girl to which our movies are stuck can still explore the big themes.

I have to admit I don't watch movies much so maybe I am missing something?
