Ghana Film Industry is Full of Hypocrisy and Not Supportive - Film Advocate

In a Facebook post sighted by asiwomewrites.com, Kwasi Bosiako Antwi described the posture as pathetic the number of media outlets that spent time in discussing Lionheart’s disqualification at the neglect of the Ghanaian Azali movie.

“Such hypocrisy is only not vexatious but terribly sad. Look at the number of televisions and radio stations, bloggers, newspapers, etc in the country, if everyone decides to make Azali a talking point for even a week, imagine the reach and push it will give the movie, ” he posted.

“It is disgusting how the Ministry of Tourism, Arts And Culture, Creative Arts Council GH, the media and the general population has taken no time to promote and support The AZALI Movie and yet has in this short period spent so much time discussing the disqualification of Nigerians Lionheart Movie. It’s pathetic,” the film advocate, Bosiako Antwi added.

He, however, hinted that Azali has been submitted to the Academy for consideration with the help of God because Ghana, as usual, has nothing to offer.
