The recent premiere of Sammy Ankrah's Divine Intelligence Film at the Odeon Cinema in London saw in attendance, top UK executives of both the NDC and NPP.

On the VIP list and present at the premiere was NDC's UK Chairman, Mr Kofi Kwakye, his party's UK secretary and others, while on the NPP's side, their UK secretary, Dr John Kissi and other party executives were in attendance.

In an interview with UK-based Ghanaian radio station, Hot Fm, where he was interviewed by presenters, Alordia and team prior to the premiere, Sammy Ankrah, the writer and director of the film, mentioned that the producers had given official invitations to the UK executives of the aforementioned parties to attend the premiere.

The special invitation, he said, was for the executives of those parties to see the movie first hand, to ascertain whether it had any links with their respective parties, as some individual supporters of both the NDC and NPP in the UK had sought to associate the movie with their respective parties some time ago.

Speaking to Deztiny Tv's Belinda Abeyie as well as BEN TV's Toniaamaka Chrisokere in an interview on the Red Carpet, Mr Kwakye, the NDC UK Chairman, said he was very proud that his countryman was the brain behind such a film dealing with a widely popular social issue of concern.

He stated that Sammy Ankrah’s effort in making such a film emphasised the positive impact that some Ghanaians are making in the Diaspora.

After screening, patrons described the film as being truly educative, entertaining and a must-watch. The evidence was clear from the reactions of the audience throughout the screening. Most of them said they could not wait to watch the film again.

Premiere of the film in Ghana and elsewhere is expected soon. Click on “photos" to see more.
