Step By Step Productions Inc.in partnership with Ghana Tourism Authority and the Year of Return premiered latest movie ‘Joseph’ on December 7, 2019. 

The invitation-only world premiere came off at the Snap Cinemas within the Accra Metropolitan Assembly building.

Edinam Atatsi, Mawuli Gavor,and other cast attended the premiere which was preceded by a cocktail reception.

The successful event was also attended by Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Tourism Authority, Akwasi Agyemeng.

‘Joseph’ boasts of a diverse cast including Kevoy Burton (Jamaica), Christopher MacFarlane (Jamaica), Alison Hinds (Barbados), Shontelle Layne (Barbados), and Stogie Kenyatta (Jamaica/USA). 

Ghanaian talents such as Mawuli Gavor, Harold Amenyah, Miriam Owusu-Poku, Sika Osei, Edward Kufuor, Richard Yaw Boateng, Ernest Odame, Adjetey Anang, and Edinam Atatsi were also featured. 

The film is an African-Caribbean drama that aims to rebuild relationships between the African and its Caribbean and diasporan family. It exemplifies the vision of bridging the gap between cultures.

Joseph King, a successful Jamaican doctor, is haunted by the memories of his beloved grandfather in Accompong, the Maroon village his family originated from. 

Although he’s considered himself to be Jamaican all his life, he yearns to visit Africa. 

His father is dismissive of any ideas of going ‘back to Africa’ because he feels it’s a step backwards for their modern family and conflict arises. 

Through the encouragement of his friend from medical school he embarks on a life-changing trip to Ghana, which takes him on a journey of self-discovery.

The film aims to break into the Nollywood film market and open doors in the Caribbean. 

It’s already secured a distribution deal with Film One Distribution in Nigeria and will screen at the Barbados International Film Festival in January 2020. 

Releases are planned for next year in New York, Toronto and London.
