Ghanaian filmmaker Shirley Frimpong-Manso has premiered a new movie that tells the story of how the coronavirus pandemic has affected human life.
The movie, titled ‘Us In Between’ was co-produced by Shirley and Ken Attoh for Sparrow Productions, stars John Dumelo, Lydia Forson, Adjetey Anang, Oscar Provencal, Gloria Sarfo, Senanu Gbedawu, and John Dumelo. Others are David Dontoh, Nikki Samonas, Mary Yirenkyi and Michelle Attoh.
On the verge of a global pandemic, a spirited nurse in Ghana prompts her hospital management to prepare ahead, while dealing with a new romantic relationship that will test her belief in love, fighting to stay alive as her city records its first case of the virus and things begin to go terribly awry.
According to Shirley, some scenes of the movie were shot during the lockdown period in Ghana, braving all the challenges and risks to pull it through.
“We had to tell the story. It’s almost like a calling. We needed to do it and we did it. We’re convinced that we would be able to get it on the right platforms and be able to get back whatever we spent on it,” Shirley said.
Dedicated to all frontline workers in the fight against the outbreak, Shirley hopes that this movie will reach the entire world.
She announced that in the coming weeks, it will be available for public viewing.
Shirley Frimpong Manso is known for award-winning movies such as ‘Perfect Picture’, ‘Potato Potahto’, ‘6 Hours to Christmas’, ‘Devil in the Detail’, ‘A Sting in a Tale’, among others.
