"Wherever you are," Anas Aremeyaw Anas says to the corrupt, "I am coming." Is Anas a crime fighter? An activist? An investigative journalist? A superhero? In varying degrees, he is all of these things – a Ghanaian one-man Woodward and Batman. He's also the subject of a tight, balanced, rough documentary by Ryan Mullins, who embeds himself with Anas as the African journalist works covertly with law-enforcement officials in cracking down on a suspicious religious sect.
The film is called Chameleon for Anas's use of disguises. As for his journalism, Anas leans toward the sensational – tabloid headlines scream about the "bonking pastor" or the "sexy lord of abortion" – and his fondness for alliteration is outrageous. He's also controversial. A newsman with the Ghana Journalists Association frowns upon Anas's use of subterfuge, and the busting-up of a prayer camp is legally questionable. Among the Ghanaians, however, Anas is a masked crusader, his pen and sword being one and the same.
