Last year, eight Nollywood movies debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), and one of them, The Wedding Party, ended up being the highest grossing Nollywood movie of all time.
Well, this year, the Ghanaian film industry has its own worthy representative at the largest and most prestigious film festival in the world as Shirley Frimpong-Manso's Potato Potahto makes its debut at the Cannes Films Festival today, May 24.
Potato Potahto follows a divorced couple (played by OC Ukeje and Joselyn Dumas) who decide to still share equal space in their home after their split.
Alongside Ukeje and Dumas, the movie's all-star cast is rounded up by the impressive Joke Silva, Kemi ‘Lala’ Akindoju, Blossom Chukujekwu and Chris Attoh.
After it's Cannes debut, the romantic comedy will then screen in Ghana, South Africa and Nigeria; followed by a European and Asian cinematic release tour before a final North American release all in 2017.
