Gold Coast / Daniel Dencik In 1836 the Danish botanist and visionary Wulff Frederik Wulff leaves on a royal mission to supervise a coffee plantation on Africa’s Gold Coast (now Ghana). Soon, his best intentions and Christian belief are tested by the harsh realities of slave trading and violence. Daniel Dencik’s first feature is an epic drama of love and faith, shedding light on a neglected chapter of Danish colonial history. The film stars Jacob Oftebro as Wulff and Danica Curcic as a young missionary. Made in collaboration with local Ghanaian filmmakers, Gold Coast is produced by Haslund/ Dencik Entertainment. Release in July 2015. Gold Coast Photo: Michael Haslund
