Miss Shirley Frimpong Manso’s latest Movie “A Sting In A Tale” has received an award at the 18th Annual Pan African Film & Arts Festival in the category ‘Audience Favorite-Narrative Feature’.

The Pan African Film and Arts Festival is America’s largest and most prestigious Black film and arts festival that takes place annually in Los Angeles during the month of February.

The goal of the Pan African Film and Arts Festival is to present and showcase the broad spectrum of Black creative works, particularly those that reinforce positive images and help to destroy negative stereotypes.  The PAFF believes film and art can lead to better understanding and foster communication between peoples of diverse cultures, races, and lifestyles, while at the same time, serve as a vehicle to initiate dialogue on the important issues of our times.

This year’s award had 135 films from 36 countries, including 40 in competition, 64 feature length films, and 12 world premieres which was announced at the festival on the 17th of February, 2010 at LOS ANGELES, California, hosted by actress CCH Pounder (Avatar) at the Culver Plaza Theatres (9919 Washington Blvd. Los Angeles).

A Sting in A Tale is a story of two young couples are striving to survive the harsh realities of life after university; unemployment, uncertainty, desperation and in the middle of it all, love. Kuuku (Adjetey Anang) is frustrated with unemployment and is faced with the possibility of losing his true love Frema (Lydia Forson) because Frema’s mother (Doris Sackitey) sees no good future in their relationship.

With these pressures, Kuuku moves heaven and earth trying to find a good job and a means to provide the future he so desperately seeks for himself, his future wife and kids. He takes the most drastic measure by resorting to rituals and soon after that, Frema passes away. After her death, Kuuku gets a well paying job and becomes a millionaire almost overnight. With the new fortunes comes a new set of problems as his best friend, Nii Aryee (Majid Michel) starts to envy Kuuku’s wealth and starts asking questions.

The ghost of Frema will not rest until the mystery surrounding her death is cleared. What unfolds is a series of unpredictable and hilarious events that would take viewers on a roller-coaster of emotions from laughter to tears and even pity.
