The Ghana film industry is going through some rough patch but some zealous Ghanaian film producers, under the aegis of Zylofon Arts Fund, are prepped to change the ill fortunes of the industry, bedeviled by sub-standard productions, disheartening distribution system and poor patronage.
The renaissance of a once buoyant industry is starting with Miracle Films with the highly anticipated release of the first movie under the succour of the Zylofon Arts Fund; www.entertainmentgh.com is excited!
In collaboration with the ‘Watch & Dine’ Cinema, Kumasi, the movie, ‘Kobolor’, from the stables of Miracle Films, is set for a grand premiere on Friday, Sept. 21.
In the movie, Alex, a very humble and quite looking man living with his wife Jessica and two children Amos and Frema faces problems in the family because of his low level of education. He is a Taxi driver while his wife, a professionally trained Teacher. His wife maltreats him almost everyday all by the contribution from her best friends she works with at school. Alex dies out of severe illness attack.
