AQ Entertainment and McAwal Concerns Productions present first Pan African film production titled “Descent – My Family then Everyone Else”.
The movie, which is centrally themed around the family, vengeance, betrayal, arms dealings and drugs, features African legendary actors like Zack Orji, Matt Stern, JT Medupe, Benedikt Sebastian, Palesa Madisakwane, Tayo Faniran, Chibuzor Nwankwo, Phoenix Baaitse and a host of others. “Descent – My Family then Everyone Else” tells the story of Kalu Achebe (Zack Orji), an illegal arms dealer, who lost his daughter to the recklessness of Vusi Morgan (JT Medupe), adopted son of Andrew Morgan (Matt Stern), a drug kingpin. Kalu Achebe seeks the heads of the culprits responsible for his daughter’s death; though he blames the world for her sudden demise but someone needs to pay for the mistake of that single night. According to the movie director; Awal Abdulfatai, “the story narrated in the film is so compelling that you wouldn’t at any time be able to tell what might happen next. Each action has a reaction and the reactions so far are unpredictable.'' The movie, which was shot on locations in Johannesburg, South Africa, enjoys a mixed-race casting to tell the story of Africa. According to the producers, ''we don’t want to produce this film as just a Nollywood product or just for the South African or Ghanaian film market, rather an African film exportable to all African film markets and even to the rest of the world. If Hollywood films come down here to make box-office success, why can’t our films also go there to do same?” “Descent–My Family then Everyone Else” is however scheduled to be premiered in some International film festivals cum 2017 and released to cinemas across Africa before it will be available for purchase on some digital platforms. The film is supported by the South Africa Police Service (SAPS), Ekurhuleni Municipality, Media Film Service, Larona HR Solutions and Lanrey Akins Fashion. The official trailer of the film is set for release by 23rd of August so we do believe that there is yet another blockbuster hitting African cinemas soon.
