Ghana film industry hasn’t shot a film like “Aloe Vera” - Nana Ama McBrown (VIDEO)

Multiple award-winning actress and TV personality Nana Ama McBrown has passed her judgement on an upcoming film, titled “Aloe Vera”, saying it’s the first of its kind in the Ghanaian film industry.

There has been a lot of social media traction about the film which was shot in 2019 and directed by Peter Sedufia of OldFilm Productions.

It attracted attention due to the investment in the production. Peter acquired a virgin land in the Volta Region and built 100 new homes just to shoot the film. Photos from the behind-the-scene were mind-blowing.

Speaking about the making of the film, Nana Ama McBrown claimed that this is a historical project in the industry and that nothing of that sort has been produced in the industry.

“In the Ghanaian film industry, we have not really shot a film like this,” Nana Ama said in the behind-the-scene video which was released on Wednesday, February 5. “A film that we built a whole community [to shoot].”

Adjetey Anang, who stars in the film, said the story speaks volume. According to him, the storyline addresses cultural indifferences and how people co-exist.

“The fact that the story addresses the subject of how we co-exist. There’s so much happenings in the world where there’s so much intolerance for personal choices for people’s culture or way of life. This story speaks volume,” he stated.

The director and producer of the film, Peter Sedufia, said the new film is an upgrade of his previous project and it is designed to give people something worth their money and time.

He said: “I looked at what I’ve done before and I asked myself what I can do better? More or less like I’m competing with myself. My main motive is for people to like it and be happy about the project, and see it as something worth their time and money.”

The film which also stars Priscilla Opoku-Agyeman, Naa Ashorkor, Nana Ama Mcbrown, Zynnell Zuh, Roselyn Ngissah and Aaron Adatsi, premieres at the Silverbird Cinemas on March 6, 2020.
