Leila Djansi on And There Was You set
Nana Akua Addo
Ghanaian movie director Leila Djansi seems to be enthusiastic about upcoming Ghanaian film, Nkuli (The Masked), which is themed on the deadly disease, HIV/Aids, and its effects in Africa. 
After seeing the film’s trailer yesterday, the director, who is expected in Ghana sometime this year for her next production said, “Nice, I will like to see this film and know how the story is structured.”
Nkuli (The Masked) is the first Ghanaian movie to treat the issues of HIV/Aids as its theme, this year. Unconfirmed reports say the Ghana AIDS Commission is one of the sponsors of the film, which is produced by actress Nana Akua Addo.
Nkuli (The Masked) tells the story of a young Nkuli (played by Nana Akua Addo) and her two siblings, Kwame (played by James Gardner) and Gye Nyame (played by Lisa Asor Awuku), who had to face the harsh realities of life after the untimely death of their parents.
They found themselves in the care of a wicked aunt (played by Paulina Oduro) who ushered Nkuli into prostitution, as a means of generating income for the family’s upkeep.
Nkuli got infected with the HIV virus and the rest of the story is what movie fans should anticipate in the next few months.
Nkuli (The Masked) generally talks about the dangers and huge risks children are exposed to when there is little or no parental guidance or protection.
It is directed by Phil Bernard for Hau of Kadewe Films, producers of the hilarious ‘Wanna Be’ movie.
Leila Djansi is known for her unique style of telling stories via visuals and she wanting to see the Nkuli story is something worth talking about.
