“The Africa International Film Festival sparkled by Martini, wrapped up with a special awards ceremony at the prestigious Oriental Hotel, Lekki – but the previous days at the festival can’t be forgotten in a rush. Like the night Africa’s finest A-list actors, producers, and directors dazzled the red carpet with everything they’ve got, at the official opening premiere and screening of Leila Djansi’s ‘Ties that Bind’. This captivating drama woven around a single hope that connects three women, living three different lives also stars Kimberly Elise, Randal Batinkoff, and Ama K. Abebrese. It’s Leila Djansi’s third film, and as she put it, ‘the film was inspired from a personal place’,” reported.

“The talented film-maker was looking ravishing on the red carpet. Stars on the red carpet also included Nollywood heavy weights. Star of the movie, ‘Ties That Bind’, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde was in the house in all her splendour. Genevieve Nnaji was looking super hot and Rita Dominic had her vava-voom on as usual,” the website added.
‘Ties That Bind’ is expected to get the same attention this Christmas as its cinema release in Ghana coincides with the festive season.

It will hit Ghanaian big screens on December 30 at the National Theater in Accra, at 6:30pm and at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Kumasi the same day.
Already, it has been screened in Toronto and reports say that lots of people endorsed it for a good work done.
It is another award-winning film from Turning Point, after ‘Sinking Sands’ made an indelible mark at the African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA).
‘Ties That Bind’ tells the story of Adobea, Buki and Theresa- played by Omotola Jalade, Ama K and Kimberly Elise- three women from three different backgrounds bound together by a similar pain; the loss of a child.

In a destined meeting in a small village in Kroboland, the women journey together to redemption, love, life and forgiveness as they renovate a dilapidated clinic for the villagers.
