ODO NNYEW FIE KWAN
“Love never loses its way home”
symbol of the power of love
PRONOUNCED: oh dough fee-eh kwan
Like all the adinkra symbols, ODO NNYEW FIE KWAN is popularly used in tattoos.
I discovered the film, Love Lights Its Path… to be an example of the inspiration of the adinkra symbols. The diverse production team, composed of Ghanaians and other Diaspora members who “found their way home”, is a real-life example of what ODO NNYEW FIE KWAN symbolizes.
Co-writers, Kwadwo Gyan-Apenteng and Nehanda Gyan-Apenteng, set out to “produce a contemporary film that explores the deeply complicated history, heritage and emotional relationship of Africans to themselves. ” and “portray the deep affect and perspective of both Africans on the continent and those in the Diaspora impacted by the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade.”
