Celebrated Star actress Nana Ama McBrown has starred in an American feature film titled Coming To Africa.
The movie, written and directed by American filmmaker Anwar Jamison, was shot in Accra and Memphis.
YEN.com.gh understands the Accra scenes in the movie were shot in 2019, during the Year of Return celebrations.
A romantic comedy, the movie is woven around a Black American man (Jamison) who lives in his comfort zone and refuses to criticise any social ills for the fear of upsetting his privilege life.
But when something happens and he visits Ghana (Africa), his perspective changes after he meets and falls in love with Akosua, a role played by McBrown.
A synopsis of the film on popular movie database Imdb.com reads:
"Adrian (Anwar Jamison), a philandering financial executive, has spent his entire life shunning Black consciousness and chasing corporate success. Adrian's brother, Buck (Khalil Kain), is an activist who routinely holds community meetings in his barbershop. After a perfect storm of disappointment and discrimination, Adrian finds himself in Ghana on an amusing adventure where he meets Akosua (Nana Ama McBrown) and finds nourishment for his soul."
The movie was supposed to be released in cinemas earlier in 2020 but has had to be postponed to October because of restrictions caused by COVID-19.
Ahead of the release, a trailer of the movie has popped up online showing McBrown in action.
Apart from McBrown, the trailer shows other Ghanaian movies stars including David Dontoh and Paulina Oduro.
The movie has also been selected for screening at the 23rd Annual Indie Memphis Film Festival down on the Mighty Mississippi River, Friday, October 23, 2020.
Jamison announced this on Instagram by sharing the selection poster.
The trailer of the American comes after she behind-the-scenes photos from an upcoming movie involving the actress popped.
The photos as sighted by YEN.com.gh have McBrown playing the role of a galamsey woman (illegal miner) going on the risky venture with other men.
Dressed in dirty and tattered clothing. She had a headlamp and wore rubber sandals (kayas) just like galamsey people and smoked a cigarette.
The photos got many fans hailing McBrown for her versatility in acting.
