Shirley Frimpong-Manso‘s Potato Potahto is set to premiere at the British Urban Film Festival on the September 9, by 6pm at the BT Tower in London.
The romantic comedy was first screened at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival in France, earlier in May.
Award-winning director Shirley Frimpong-Manso who wrote and directed the movie said she decided to make a movie on divorce because the theme hasn’t been explored in Africa. She said, “Divorce is a difficult process and I hoped to write a story that reflects the difficulties in a fun and unusual way.”
Potato Potahto which features a remarkable cast including OC Ukeje, Joselyn Dumas, Ajoke Silva, Lala Akindoju, Nikki Samonas, Chris Attoh, Blossom Chukwujekwu and others, is a fantastic showcase of how international cooperation, talent, and creativity can combine to give a wonderful and universally attractive film experience.
The comedy of errors tells a story of a divorced couple who decide co-habit on equal terms in their former matrimonial home but soon come to the realisation that the ingenious idea is easier said than done.
Potato Potahto is a co-production of WB Entertainment, 19 April Entertainment, Ascend International Studios, Virgo Sun Ltd, and Lufodo Productions.
The film is distributed by Jambo Play. Nigeria-based distribution company FilmOne has first-look rights for Nigeria and UK.
The 2017 edition of The British Urban Film Festival will take place from September 6th to 12th.
