Filmmaker, Leila Djansi has said that she is not a senior in the filmmaking industry neither does she see herself better than her colleagues in the industry.
This comes after she wrote a long essay to support the stance of Gabby Otchere Darko who was disappointed after watching ten Ghanaian movies.
Parts of her post supporting Gabby said “My dear filmmakers in Ghana. Leave this politician guy alone! What he said about the industry is the truth. I don’t see why there’s so much deflection and insult for him. He pretty much said Ghanaian films have no soul and he is RIGHT. Watching Ghanaian films is like talking to a lover who has dark glasses over his eyes. No connection”.
Her post certainly didn’t go down well with some industry players.
In a followup post, Leila mentioned that “Nope, I am not better or senior to anyone else who has made or is making films in Ghana. I have just been privileged enough to have made more mistakes. So, I speak from the pain and experience of mistakes I made”.
