Abstract:

His Majesty's Sergeant is a film produced by the late Ghanaian director Ato Yanney. A story of racial conflict set in the war-torn Burmese forest during 1944 when three soldiers, an African, an Indian and a Briton, end up hiding together. Three disparate bands, Jafa (Tommy Ebow Ansah), Singh (Surinder Singh Ghuman) and Jake (Tony Trent) are embroiled in their own differences of attitude, prejudice, rank and race equality. The film is a fascinating portrayal about the fight for Independence and the Commonwealth nations which helped Britain to win the war. The late Ato Kwamina Yanney was a film director and writer, best remembered for his contributions to fiction and documentary films with the National Film Corporation in Ghana between 1960 and 1980. Yanney's films include the notable classics such as: His Majesty's Sergeant - a film on the role of African Soldiers in the Second world war, No Tears For Ananse, Death On Wheels Genesis Chapter X and documentaries like Panoply of Ghana and The Market Day. In his time he was a modern day commentator, producing films which engaged and responded to the social, cultural and political issues in Ghana.
