Ghanaian actress Ellen Kyei White has bemoaned the seeming neglect of the NPP government for the movie industry after they took power in 2017 despite the many promises they made in their manifesto prior to the 2014 general election.
Speaking in an interview with Zionfelix, the award-winning actress noted that she can’t pinpoint any single thing which can be touted as an achievement of the government in power for the movie industry. She also stressed that maybe they currently are thinking about something they are going to do in the near future but as it stands, it is zero.
She also gave them pointer areas they can focus on if they have plans to help the movie industry anytime soon when she was making her submission on the show. She disclosed that the building of cinema halls for the movie industry, especially in Kumasi, is something that will go a very long way to help them.
Ellen White added that the few privately owned cinema halls in Kumasi are currently killing movie producers because of the huge amount of monies they have to pay before they premiere their movie there.
