Tamale, Oct. 11, GNA - AZALI, a film that tries to address some of the social issues confronting society, would be premiered in Tamale tomorrow, October 12.
AZALI is a story of a 14-year old girl from the north of the country, who is forced by the circumstances to travel down south to fend for herself but other things happen to her in the south that worsen her plight.
The one and a half hour film, combines some of the well-known talents or actors from the north such as Afa Nasam, Hajia Mary Cokrah and Asana Alhassan, and from the south Adjety Anan, and Ama K. Abebrese to shoot what industry analysts describe as an authentic movie that reflects the realities of the time.
Mr Kwabena Gyansah, Director of Ananse Entertainment, producers of AZALI, said the film received international commendation as it was already shown in countries including Kenya and Canada where it was highly patronized.
Mr Gyansah urged film lovers in the north especially Tamale to come out in their numbers to watch the film saying “the script is tight and it resonates well with all.”
He said Ananse Entertainment would continue to produce authentic movies that reflected the realities of people’s lives.
Mr Adjetey Anan, an actor and character in AZALI, said the film gave a deeper understanding of the realities on the ground rather than listening to it in the news.
