A West African thriller movie titled Can’t Have it All which was shot in The Gambia in November last year and was produced by the country’s filmmaker and actress Lilian Azizi, will be premiered in Blantyre and Lilongwe in March this year.
The first premiere will be on March 27 at Sunbird Capital Hotel in Lilongwe and then March 28 at Sunbird Mount Soche in Blantyre.
Azizi, who is based in The Gambia confirmed the development yesterday saying she was excited that the movie will be premiered in the country.
“Everything is set and I am pleased to say that the venues have been confirmed too,” she said.
The movie Can’t Have It All stars four female friends whose seemingly perfect friendship takes a huge twist after a huge secret comes out.
Azizi said the movie features a diverse cast of The Gambian actors and actresses.
“I am looking forward to an exciting event at Sunbird Mount Soche Hotel and I call upon people to come because it will be an experience,” she said.
Azizi said The Gambia supported the premiere and that she was looking for the best in the country.
Project Manager and a seasoned events organiser, Priscilla Mhango, said the movie was meant to boast of the talent that we have in our country.
‘This will also give a platform for other creatives from different but related fields to share in the joy of the production and help with putting the event together,” Mhango said.
She said that the movie premiere will also mark the launch of a series that Lilian and Lamp House Productions was planning to produce in the country alongside Malawian actors and actresses.
Azizi, 34, is a creative person, who started her career in the modelling industry as a contestant in the 2003 Miss Malawi where she was the crowned the First Princess.
She relocated to The Gambian where she worked as a Sales Executive for Brussels Airlines before she started her career as a movie producer.
The film Can’t Have It All is her first movie and has so far cemented her path in the film industry.
