This joyful ode to girlhood and innocence mirrors the playful spirit of the game from which the title is derived. Ampe, a rhythmic, high-energy game that includes jumping, clapping, and cheering as two teams select a stepping pattern and face off is a Ghanaian staple. From Accra, Ghana to Columbus, Ohio, Ampe: Leap into the Sky, Black Girl chronicles a group of girls as they retrace the steps back to their childhood selves. This charmer presents a slice of Black sisterhood and comments on the arts of home that we carry with us forever.
