2015 hasn’t been one of the best things as far as local film is concerned; just at the beginning, all the submissions to Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCAs) were rejected that saw Veve from Kenya become the sole East African representative, then all film makers that had promised progress as early as 2014 somehow failed to take off and yes, that poorly managed Uganda Film Festival happened again.
But the year nears the end, it’s not all that bleak, awards and sudden premieres are coming in.
One of these is Wako, earlier thought to premiere in March; it’s a film that rotates around a brother striving to save his reckless sister from cervical cancer.
But it’s not the usual awareness film; in fact, the screen play wright may have been at his best with the type of story; He uses Kampala’s underground drug and crime scene to convey a story relevant to a both female and male audience.
The film will be premiering at Theater Labonita tomorrow.
The plush red carpet event will kick off at 6pm when the actors and the crew will meet and mingle with the fans.
Tickets will be going for shs20,000/= for ordinary and VIP for shs50,000/=.
The film which had its international premiere at the Arusha International Film Festival, also won the Best Feature Film at the same do.
Wako stars Natuhwera Brighton, Ernest Robert Bbumba, Edison Ssemanda, Jayant Maru, Geoffrey Echakara and it's written and directed by Aaron Zziwa.
