It’s exactly 24 years since the production of Deadly Voyage was shot and produced in Ghana.
Speaking in a special gathering with a section of cast of the 1996 produced movie , the multiple award winning actor revealed producing the movie in Ghana was one of the bright moments of many moments in the history of Ghana and the filmmaking.
Looking back, he feels there is the need to revamp the film industry and give it the necessary injection that will keep it sustained.
““Producing Deadly Voyage 24 years ago was one of the bright moment of many moments in the history of Ghana and the filmmaking. From Ghana Films which was established at the time of Independence. One of the first countries that established their own film production companies after Independence was Ghana”
Danny Glover believes one of the things he would love to be a part of is to see the set up of Ghana National Film Fund. He reiterated the importance of such a fund to Ghana and the rest of the world.
“I think we have an extraordinary opportunity this moment in Ghana’s history to create something that is sustainable. And that sustainability lies in setting up a Ghana National Film Fund and industry. Putting it on its feet . Brining people to Ghana to make films as the number one destination in West Africa providing the opportunity not only to build a film industry but allowing them to create wealth that service not only West Africa and Africa but the rest of the planet..”
