Multiple-award winning Ghanaian filmmaker, Frank Fiifi Gharbin, can now heave a deep sigh of relief, as his desire to have one of his best shot movies on Amazon Prime (US), has become a reality.
Elated Gharbin fondly known as director one, disclosed: “We are glad to inform you that Ghana’s indigenous movie, ‘Return Of The Black Monkey’ which broke into Amazon Prime (UK), has finally been granted access to Amazon Prime (US) – after passing the closed captions technology test.”
Amazon is also glad to inform you that from next week, return of the black monkey will also be published live on the continent of Australia (on amazon prime Australia), and the territories of Canada and New Zealand – making it a worldwide distribution deal.
An expatriate enters into an Ashanti Kingdom as a priest to preach the word of God but his real intention is to steal their precious stones or gold which the people don’t know its usefulness.
He bought their minds with hot drinks like schnapps, brainwashed them and change their lifestyle by selling foreign clothes and items to them in exchange for their precious stones or gold.
Now he wants to rule them through their chief who has neglected their traditions and customs because of schnapps he gets to drink but the black monkey, who happens to be the native doctor has stood up in a battle to see who’s god or gods are strong and whoever god or gods wins religion declared as the official religion of the kingdom.
Who wins this battle? Can the black monkey turn the white man into a white monkey?
The movie stars: Van Vicker as the white man, Big Akwess as the black monkey, Emmanuel France, Lil Wayne, Bishop Bernard Nyarko, Joe Shortingo among others. The movie is expected to be premiered at the Silver Birds cinema in June and then travel across other regions in Ghana.
It was written, produced and directed by Frank Fiifi Gharbin – aka director one.
