A film by Ryan Mullins.
A janitor mopping floors in a brothel. A drugged out Rastafarian in a psychiatric ward. A wealthy investor in high heels and lipstick. These are just a few of the disguises that Anas Aremeyaw Anas has used to infiltrate Africa’s criminal underworld. But Ghana’s most notorious journalist is more than just a reporter. He’s a crime fighter who uses his journalistic skills to bust corruption; a modern day folk hero who keeps his identity hidden from the public. Anas reveals a side of Africa rarely seen: tabloid journalism, high-tech surveillance and high-speed car chases. Filmmaker Ryan Mullins goes beyond the pulp thriller to create a complex and revealing portrait. Is Anas a journalist, or a vigilante? Just how far is he willing to go to uncover the truth? CHAMELEON takes us deep into the most difficult case Anas has faced to date, and the legal and moral conflicts challenging him.
