After almost two years after its premiere in Ghana, Nadia Buari's first self produced movie is set for a special screening in the USA.
Nadia Buari’s Dairy of Imogene Brown movie has been selected to screen at the largest film festival in the United States of America dedicated to the exhibition of black films. Each year, the Pan African Film Festival exhibits more than 150 films made in the USA, Africa, Europe, the Caribbean, the South Pacific, Latin America and Canada with over forty thousand people from both the film industry and the public in attendance.
Imogen Brown tells the story of a successful business woman who had it all. Such as what most women will wish for, an incredibly beautiful daughter, a great home, a diamond business empire and a handsome boyfriend. Unknowing to her, her envious boyfriend, Tyler Graham, who had been having an affair with two of Imogen’s closest friends, was only interested in her wealth. After many failed attempts of persuading Imogen to marrying him so he could take over her company, he decides to walk out on their six years relationship. In trying to get over the pain of heartbreak, she meets Stanley Coleman who introduces her to all kinds of drugs and as a result becomes an addict.
The premiere of the Diary of Imogene Brown took place on 22nd December 2013 and saw thousands of her fans and guests trooping into the Accra International Conference Center to show their support for the movie. The DOIB also premiered in Takoradi at the Akroma Plaza on Tuesday December 24th and at the Kumasi Golden Tulip on Thursday, December 26th, then Ladi Kwali Hall of Sheraton Hotel, Nigeria. The movie has since been in high demand.
This year’s PAFF is scheduled to take place in Los Angeles’ all-digital Rave Cinemas 15 Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza from February 5 to February 16 and we sure believe Nadia will make Ghana Proud again
