Actor and producer, Eddie Nartey, has shared his excitement after his film, “Saving Chris,” secured The People’s Choice Award at the Black Star International Film Festival.
In an exclusive interview, Mr Nartey revealed his initial disbelief upon hearing the news and expressed his joy at the recognition of the work produced by the young talents at EN ACADEMY.
“I didn’t believe it when I was told I had won,” he confessed, explaining that he received the incredible news right at the festival’s entrance due to being caught in Accra’s notorious traffic. “I was happy, especially for the fact that the works of young talents from EN ACADEMY are being recognized by the world.”
“Saving Chris” struck a chord with the festival audience, resonating deeply with viewers due to its poignant exploration of the misuse of drugs among the youth and its devastating consequences.
Nonetheless, the renowned producer emphasized that the film’s subject matter addresses a pressing issue, saying, “We can all testify to the high rate of drug abuse among the youth in Accra and Ghana at large. Having a movie with such a relevant and relatable subject matter in society is what I think contributed to its success. I also believe that the actors carried their various roles impressively well, considering that most of them are up and coming.”
