Black Star: Shirley Frimpong-Manso

Gone are the days when watching African movies meant, -lots of screaming, intangible pigeon English, 'over-the -top-acting, actresses rolling their eyes -strangely, angry people and women in submissive roles. Well, thankfully, the aforementioned issues are in the past -and a new dawn is being heralded by Ghana's own, Shirley Frimpong-Manso (Sparrow Productions) -of, 'Different Shades of Blue -fame. The director/writer/producer -of , 'Perfect Picture' (above) and past favourites like, - ‘Life and Living It’, and ‘Scorned’, - Shirley's modern and relevant films are a 'must see'. From the perfect lighting, to the gripping storyline and the talented actors -the quality of Shirley's films are a breath of fresh air -and she and Sparrow Production -are enjoying critical and commercial success across Africa, Europe and America. So, add a must watch, 'Perfect Picture' -to your to do list -the gripping tale (of friendship between three seemly perfect women) has all the twists and turns of a good drama, -and stars the cream of Ghana cinema, -Adjetey Annang; Chris Attoh, Kweku Sintim-Misa, Jackie Appiah, Lydia Forson, Naa Ashorkor Mensah-Doku and Nana Kwame Osei Sarpong. Fabulous...xx
