The Rector of the National Film and Television Institute (NAFTI), Prof Linus Abraham, has paid glowing tribute to TV Africa’s CEO, Kwaw Ansah, for what he described as his interest in creating a new dimension in the film industry.

Prof Linus Abraham made the commendation at the launch of Kwaw Ansahs’ new 146 page comic book written from his movie, ‘Love Brewed in an African Pot’, at the British Council Hall, Accra recently.

The brief event was also attended by ministers of state, players in the movie industry, heads of private educational institutions and school pupils among others.

‘Love Brewed in an African Pot’, which was produced in the late 1970s, has been described by intellectuals and people in the industry as being a classic movie for its content and editing among other qualities.

Prof Linus Abraham added that many intellectuals across the world prefer to read comic books rather than movies for their ability to capture readers’ attention.

The Rector urged the young breed of film directors and producers to take advantage of what he described as a new dimension in the industry opened by Mr Kwaw Ansah to create an easy to read comic series for all age groups.

A member of the cast, Anima Misa Amoah, was happy that the movie continues to be relevant in portraying the ideals of society.

Mike Eghan was happy that ‘Love Brewed in an African Pot’, though more than three decades old, had lived on to tell its story in a book form for all to read.

The director of the movie, Kwaw Ansah, who also authored the book, said the introduction of the ‘Love Brewed in an African Pot’ as a comic book was to give a new dimension to the business of film production as well as capture more patronage for the movie.

He expressed satisfaction that ‘Love Brewed in an African Pot’ had won a large international patronage, adding that the comic series will equally be a hit on both local and international markets.

The author of the comic book praised the cast and crew for what he described as their high level of professionalism when the movie was being shot.

According to him, the cast includes Anima Misa Amoah, Kofi Yirenkyi, Mary Yirinkyi, Kwadwo Dadson and Doris Kuwornu.
