2016 Sparrow Entertainment Festival

On 8th and 9th January, 2016 at the Accra Mall’s SilverBird Cinema, Sparrow Productions served African movie lovers the first dose of its Sparrow Entertainment Festival—screening two of its latest productions; an enthralling political drama series titled ‘SHAMPAIGN’ and a one-of-a-kind movie thriller titled ‘REBECCA.’
They promised a two-day soiree of up close and personal interaction with cast, crew and movie stars from all around the continent, red carpet pictures, interviews, autograph signing and behind the scenes gossip—which was duly delivered.
The 2016 Sparrow Entertainment Festival was a success and therefore we expect it to take on an annual cloak.
The red carpet was celebrity packed; various movie stars and industry persons from Nigeria and Ghana attended—notably; Shirley Frimpong-Manso, Joselyn Dumas, Adjetey Anang, OC Ukeje, Joseph Benjamin, Fred Amugi, Akorfa Edjeani Asiedu, Ken Attoh, Zynell Zuh and others.

In my review, I mentioned that; “I have long predicted and in a way hoped for a change in the improbable manner the African HIV/AIDS story has been told by many African film-makers. Interestingly, Shirley Frimpong Manso has taken up the challenge to tell the story in a way that is pulsing to the heart—and captivating to the mind in her latest movie-LOVE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.”

Watch Shirley Frimpong-Manso’s ‘GREY DAWN’ Online Now | The Wait is Over…

Grey Dawn
Grey Dawn

In my review of the latest Shirley Frimpong-Manso’s movie-GREY DAWN, I described it as that movie which “takes a shot at interesting but contrasting human endeavours; politics, family, genuine relationships and illicit affair”.

Now you can watch the movie online at SparrowStation.Com—and find out for yourself, how these things play out and what eventually wins the battle.

No doubt the movie departs from the usual central themes of many of our African movies by placing 4 strong conflicting desires on the table—but Shirley Frimpong-Manso perfectly tells the story without any drop of confusion.

It’s a Shirley Frimpong-Manso and Sparrow Productions’ movie so you definitely know you would be served with something interesting on a quality plate…

CLICK HERE TO WATCH GREY DAWN ON SPARROWSTATION.COM NOW

In ‘Grey Dawn’, “a government minister must choose between using his position to help his father in law stay out of jail for tax evasion or allow the law to take its course with him. His decision sets in motion a chain of events that lures him into committing the one sin that will haunt him for the rest of his life”.

Weighing In On Shirley Frimpong-Manso’s ‘GREY DAWN’ | When Politics, Family, Genuine & Illicit Affairs Take Center Stage…

Grey Dawn
Watching Grey Dawn

Multiple award-winning film-maker Shirley Frimpong-Manso’s latest movie-Grey Dawn which will start showing in Accra from Friday, 13th February, 2015 takes a big shot at interesting but contrasting human endeavours; politics, family, genuine relationships and illicit affair.

It may seem a little too much to have these strong though conflicting desires come to play in a single movie—however, with her excellent story telling prowess, Shirley Frimpong-Manso succeeds in finding a competing but salient grounds for all these things which have become part and parcel of our human existence.

The movie defines the grounds and boundaries for these human desires but at the end of it all, it becomes obvious which amongst the competing interests takes that single important stage in the lives of the main characters.

Grey Dawn
Grey Dawn

Anyone who has seen many of Shirley Frimpong-Manso’s movies wouldn’t struggle to extract from her films that she is more of an idealists (sociological sense)—and her ‘utopian’ society was once again vivid on screen. By ‘utopian’ society, I mean an African society where a politician is indeed honourable with some sort of conscience in place.

The Storyline…

In ‘Grey Dawn’, a Government Minister (Harold Davis) played by Bimbo Manuel is fixed between using his position to help his father-in-law stay out  of jail for tax evasion or allow the law to take its course with him.

Harold Davis’ decision pulls in his wife’s anger (Jessica Davis played by Funlola Aofiyebi-Raimi), worsened by the fact that the stress of the case eventually led to Jessica’s father untimely death.

The anger of Jessica alone would have been bearable for Harold Davis but to watch on helplessly as he begins to loose his wife to the company of a young handsome man—who offers Jessica that perfect wormhole from her darkness into a world of art and music begins to challenge his position as a man, a father and a husband.

Grey Dawn
Grey Dawn

This is where it gets pretty interesting…

As Jessica is taken into a different world of artistry beauty and temporal peace merged with fun; the same wormhole began to pull her returnee daughter into its deep space—this time, made easy by the fact that Jessica’s daughter (Flora Mends played by Sika Osei) had the same obsessions which dwell in the works of this strange man (Jack played by Marlon Mave) whose works and ‘oomph’ had already consumed Jessica.

I wouldn’t want to box this into the concept of utopianism but it’s difficult to find a society where a woman who is married to a prominent Minister of State would run after a somewhat ‘broke’ painter who does not measure on the social ladder…

Grey Dawn (2)
Scene from Grey Dawn

 

Of course the above is capable of happening, especially when the woman has been hurt and care no more about those things we regarded as valuable or socially relevant—in such cases, she yearns for the simplest of things which she would normally pay no attention to. And this is exactly the position we find Funlola Aofiyebi-Raimi’s character…

LOVE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT premiere

 

Multiple award-winning film-maker-Shirley Frimpong Manso and her Sparrow Productions team premiered their latest movie-LOVE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT few days ago at the National Theatre in Accra—and apart from the fact that the premiere was fully packed, patrons had a lot of great things to say about the movie.

I watched the movie over the weekend and wrote in my review that “though the theme of the script is set on ‘HIV/AIDS’, the film brilliantly tells the story in such a way that, it does not only steal the best part of your emotions—and it doesn’t do so by invoking ‘sorrowfulness’, but by making you consider the fact that there is unimaginable value in being self-conscious when it comes to sex”.

Surely, it wasn’t just me who noticed the excellence embedded in the production and how brilliant the film tackles the social issue of HIV/AIDS.

Without Shirley Frimpong Manso and her Sparrow Productions’ team, I wonder what most of us quality African movies lovers would have to look forward to, considering the huge existing gap between her productions and that of the others.

If we are to go by convention, the rate at which Shirley Frimpong Manso keeps releasing movies should have a ‘negative’ bearing on the quality of her productions but over the years, we’ve seen she keeps getting better with each production.

We thought POTOMANTO was the best (no wonder it has already received 9 nominations at this year’s African Movie Academy Awards) but Devil in the Detail’ took us to a whole different level and now ‘Love or Something Like That’ is here to take us even higher.

My Thoughts On Shirley Frimpong Manso’s New Movie-POTOMANTO | ‘Women Used To Be Faithful, At Least To The Money’

Potomanto3
Yvonne Okoro in Potomanto

During the Christmas holidays, I had the opportunity to watch the new Shirley Frimpong Manso’s feature film-POTOMANTO in its full HD glory via Sparrow Station—and the experience was beyond my expectation.

Before I proceed with my thoughts on POTOMANTO, let me steal a bit of the space to tell you about my Sparrow Station experience.

I think I am in the best position to rate the Sparrow Station Video on Demand service. After all, I am a regular user of some of the best global VOD services such as Netflix, Lovefilm, NowTV and BlinkBox—I have once held accounts with all these platforms.

After having watched several movies on the above VOD platforms, I have become used to streaming interruptions, especially when the speed of the internet is not great. Even with my recently acquired fibre optic broadband connection, I’ve not been able to completely escape the headache of streaming interruptions.

Therefore, I was prepared to see the streaming of POTOMANTO on Sparrow Station being interrupted, at least two or three times. But shockingly, I watched the entire movie on Sparrow Station without any streaming interruption—and the quality of the movie was GREAT.

The first time I watched POTOMANTO, I did so on my laptop. And when I decided to re-watch it for the purpose of this write up, I hooked my laptop up to my TV—without losing any bit of the HD quality on the large TV.  In fact, it felt like I was watching one of the usual SKY HD channels.

Potomanto1
Watching Potomanto from Sparrow Station

Now back to the movie…POTOMANTO

Storyline

The movie touches on a global developing illegality, where certain underprivileged people in third world countries are lured with fictitious quick money opportunities—fetching them more than they bargain for.Mostly, with genuine intention and keen determination to change their lives for better, these poor young individuals find themselves being over-exploited by the rich.
