Mo Asumang Portrait on MNET by Moderator Fareed Khimani
Mo is an acclaimed filmmaker, actress, and moderator well known in Germany due to her brave documentary movies and TV moderation. Recently she has gained International exposure being featured in Roman Polanski's movie "The Ghostwriter" playing Condoleezza Rice, featured in an article by USA Today which linked President Obama and Mo Asumang, being compared to Michael Moore, and through her work leading workshops and lectures about racism and social integration in Universities and Schools across USA and Europe.
Since the beginning of her career as actress and TV moderator in Germany in 1996, she has became a well known cultural figure and has taken on a successful career as both moderator, producer, writer, actress, and film director. In recent years Mo has dedicated her multi talents and her energy to creative activism in the field of racism.
In her new documentary "Road to Rainbow", directed and produced by Mo Asumang, Mo is searching for the dream the south Africans had about equality that was to rise after the Apartheid Era, and the social reality of South Africa 16 years later.
In her last movie "Roots Germania" Mo was able to solve a trauma caused by racism; She undertakes a journey to discover her roots and identity, facing her African father in Ghana, her White German Mother in German, and Jürgen Rieger, the head of the neonaziparty NPD. The catalyst of this journey, a threat over her life received by the NeoNazi Band "White Aryan Rebels", becomes a poignant tool for self discovery and a sharp reflection to matters of racism in Germans society of today.
Mo's seeking for social justice is not by chance. At the age of 5 weeks Mo was sent to an orphanage, and then raised by foster parents and her white grandmother. Mo Asumang has been selected as one of the leading figures and activists in Germany for social integration and Intercultural affairs.
