‘My Very Ghanaian Wedding’ movie premieres on October 6
The much anticipated romantic comedy which questions love and customs is set to be released on October 6, 2017.
Ahead of the grand premiere, media was treated to thirty minutes of a foretaste of what the movie is comprised of.
Speaking to Citi Showbiz on the sidelines of the press preview, producer of the film Ludwig Mawuli Kalmz said the film is full of surprises as a foreigner finds her way into the life of a Ghanaian man.
“This movie has a little surprise as to how the families will cope with the situation and the friends who are involved because falling in love at a friend’s engagement to someone that no one expects and how a Ghanaian family handles it and how the foreigner’s family will also handle it is reveals a lot,” he said.
He added that the movie highlights a number of moral lessons such as the effects of mothers preventing their wards from making some personal decisions.
“It is not right for mothers to live their lives through children. Teach your child the values but you don’t have to live your life in your child, the child must also be given the chance to make some decisions on his or her own,” he intimated.
On his part, writer and director of the movie, Helel Smith explained his decision to abandon an austere story line for a romantic story.
“I was supposed to do a horror movie but that didn’t happen so I decided to do something light to get people introduced to the style of filming and writing and I thought what better to do is a romantic comedy,” he stated.
Screen gem, Adjetey Anang who featured in the film also highlighted the fact that the story addresses pertinent problem plaguing society.
“This is not something just out of the blue it is very practical especially when it has to do with marriages, in the movie you have an element of a clash of cultures and how we relate to an outsider (foreigner) in our setting. Also a clash of generations because the old folk think their ways are the best and younger ones also think same so how do we find the meeting point of understanding. These are some of the issues the movie raises,” he added.
‘My Very Ghanaian Wedding’ centres on love tradition and culture, and how it determines the fate of a young couple.
The movie features Adjetey Anang, who is obediently engaged to an African woman chosen by his mother (Grace Omaboe) but falls in love with a Caucasian woman.
Other actors in the movie include Vincent McCauley, Elaine Attoh, Ludwig Kalms, Dzifa Glikpoe and others.
The movie will be premiered at the Silverbird Cinemas (Accra Mall and West Hills Mall) on 6th and 7th October at 7pm and 9pm respectively for GH¢ 30.
