Though some Ghanaian movie producers grumble that their movies are unable to enter Nigeria due to unfavorable conditions or barriers, other Ghanaian movie makers seem to have found a solution to this challenge.
Director Shirley Frimpong Manso recently premiered her ‘Adams Apples’ in Nigeria and BAFTA/LA recognition recipient Leila Djansi’s ‘Sinking Sands’ is now showing in Nigerian theaters from Friday October 14 and would run for weeks.
The film, which has been endorsed by the UNIFEM for its theme of violence against women, stars Jimmy Jean-Louis (‘Heroes’, ‘Phat Girls’), Nollywood’s Yemi Blaq, and Ama K Abebrese, with cameo appearances by Chris Attoh.
‘Sinking Sands’ won Ama K Abebrese the 2011 Best Actress award at the African Movie Academy Awards. The film was nominated in 10 categories, with successful screenings held at the Pan African Film Festival, Film Independent, Festival du Cannes among other prestigious festivals and international screens. It is still winning awards across Africa and beyond.
‘Sinking Sands’ tells the story of a couple, Jimah (Jimmy Jean-Louis) and Pabi (Ama K. Abebrese) in a loving marriage which turns into one of violence and abuse when Jimah becomes disfigured in a domestic accident.
