Ghanaian actor, Adjetey Anang has kicked against the notion that the Ghanaian film industry is “dead.”

According to the award-winning actor, the industry may have some problems that need attention, however, it is not completely not functional.

“For want of a better illustration, take the guy who is handicapped on our streets who has a mental issue. There’s a problem, for him to go naked on the streets but he’s living…So that’s our film industry,” he stated in a recent interview with Prince Benjamin on the Class FM Drive show.

Adjetey, who stars in the soon-to-be premiered award-winning movie “Borga” also highlighted some ills in the film industry that needs dire attention.

He believes “it’s a whole chain” that includes the lack of schools and sensitisation of the youth on industry matters and opportunities.

According to him, “there’s no structure and therefore people just come in and do whatever they want. Beyond that we have issues of quality. People are not interested in the skill and training. They want quick money. So then the real reason why we’re in this industry then fails.

“We’re not helping other arms of government, or departments. It’s a holistic thing. What we churn out partly goes a long way in shaping society or transforming their minds or their thinking. Provoking questions here and there,” he added.
