Movie director, Frank Garbin professionally known as Director 1 has come for critics of his latest production titled Black Monkey.
Days ago, the trailer for the movie which features Van Vicker, Kwadwo Nkansah Lil Win, Joe Shortingo among others hit online and fans, after watching what the movie is about has expressed their disappointment with the title.
Many are those who believe Black Monkey as a title for the movie is an insult to the Ghanaian community and the African continent as a whole. According to them, the movie and its title appear to be a racist movie and with that, they find it too disappointing to see something like this come from a black man. However, the director who knows the kind of message he is sending out has laid his voice on these comments circulating around this creative production. According to Frank Garbin, he sees nothing wrong with the title.
Honestly I see nothing wrong with the title. But what i will say is this, after watching the whole movie and understanding the message in it, they will know Black Monkey is the perfect caption for this production. Frank stated
Sometimes its so pathetic that, in this 21st century, when someone is referring to we blacks, it is Black Monkey that they use in reference to us. These and many other mental slavery actions in our generation that, it is only the Black Monkey movie which will take off that perception away from our minds. You cant judge a book by its cover, you read the book and understand its content. Frank Garbin added
Black Monkey will be premiered on July 9 2016 inside the SilverBird Cinemas, Accra Mall.
Various Kumawood stars are set to invade the Accra Mall on the day of the premiere. Before you grab your ticket and popcorn for the first time watch of Black Monkey, watch the trailer below….
