The Film: The 80s by Romeo D. Amoateng The 80s is a film that depicts the virtues and vices inherent in the cocoa industry in Ghana. It traces the origins of the crop from Tetteh Quarshie, who first brought the cocoa seeds from Fernando Po, Equatorial Guinea, to Ghana over a century and half ago. The Golden Pod, the agricultural contemporary of Ghana’s mineral resources was divinely gifted to Tetteh Quarshie to salvage the then Gold Coast from poverty, deprivation and squalor. The cocoa industry is one of the few sectors that have served as the economic backbone of the nation for well over one-and-a half centuries. The impact of the industry has sustained the agriculture sector and given the nation the pride of place in the external market of the product. From the time Tetteh Quarshie brought the cocoa beans to Ghana, the Golden Pod has helped to build and sustain families, communities and institutions on their sweat. With the product, Ghana immediately rose to the pinnacle in the production of cocoa; captured the commanding heights in the agricultural sector in West African, and thus catapulted the country into prominence as its iconic product aside gold (mineral). Cocoa indeed became a prestigious crop in Ghana and has since been Ghana’s primus inter paris agricultural product.
