The excitement is on and we cannot wait to watch another great feature film-POTOMANTO from multiple-award winning Director-Shirley Frimpong Manso

For the past 6 years, Shirley Frimpong Manso and her Sparrow Productions team have set astronomical production standards—which they continue to push higher with each new release.

If you think ‘Life and Living It’ is classic, then I am sure you have not seen the ‘Perfect Picture’ yet. Similarly, if you think ‘Scorned’ is intriguing, then you must have missed ‘A Sting In A Tale’. And if you think the quality of ‘Six Hours To Christmas’ was far above the African Movie standard, then you have to see ‘Adams Apples’.

Shirley Fimpong Manso has never disappointed with her movies—and her new release will not do that either. Considering the standard she puts out there and challenges she continuously overcome,  just think of her as the ‘Peter Jackson’ of African cinema.

Surely, Christmas wouldn’t have been the same without another GREAT movie from Shirley Frimpong Manso and her Sparrow Productions Team. And she calls this one-POTOMANTO  “ a Ghanaian evolved version of the French word Portmanteau which means, large suitcase”.

Are you ready for the POTOMANTO thrill?

The question in POTOMANTO is; as the search for greener pastures gets deadly, what do you think will happen?

In POTOMANTO, ex police officer Adane is angry about being cheated on so he sets out to take his pound of flesh when he employs his skills to catching women who cheat on their men. But he’s in for a real cat and mouse game when he’s hired to catch Susan, the alluring young wife of a wealthy Nigerian businessman.

However the chase takes a different turn as a string of bizarre murders among seemingly young hustlers engulf the community. Soon it becomes apparent that the pursuit of greener pastures has manifested into a diabolical plot of illegal organ harvesting leaving its ignorant victims maimed or dead.

What follows is a terrifying race against time where two people from opposite sides of the law must face horrific dangers in an attempt to stop the canker that is annihilating an entire generation.

Starring Adjetey Anang, Olu Jacobs, Yvonne Okoro, Marie Humbert, Mikkie Osei-Berko (Master Richard of Taxi Driver fame),  POTOMANTO will be premiered on 20th December, 2013 at the Silver Bird Cinema in Accra.
