Ghanaian actress and television personality, Ama K. Abebrese has said movie makers in Ghana cry to the government not necessarily because they need money, but because they feel the need to get a good terrene to operate.
The actress made this known on Accra based Hitz Fm on Monday.
As monitored by ghlinks.com.gh, she said she understands the needs of government to provide a whole lot of amenities and deliver on demands of the citizens of the country, which is very important. However, it is no strange news that entertainment in every country is very essential, citing the instance of America’s Hollywood which she said is used as a propaganda machine for the United States.
She added that movie makers will have a much comfortable working space if they get a number of operational stations available for them. “To be honest, I don’t think a lot of times when stakeholders in the film industry are crying to government it’s because they want any money. Essentially, all they want is a good terrene. A good terrene for movie makers”.
She further stated that even though government is adamant on providing these facilities to aid their operations, they (movie makers and producers) are doing movies irrespective. She added that it would help them a lot more when they get more cinemas and exhibition centers across the country so they can put their works out for people to patronize them. “Regardless of government support, there are people who are still dong films. I don’t want to cry to them too much. Just give us basic things like exhibition centres.”
The actress revealed that people from all over the world accept their films, describing the feeling as amazing.
