Shemu Joyah screens movie in Mzuzu
Award-winning filmmaker Shemu Joyah last Thursday reached out to the Northern Region when he screened his film The Road to Sunrise at the opening ceremony of the Mzuzu Fashion Week.
In the film, exploited by men and ridiculed by the world, two prostitutes find hope in each other as they search for the road to redemption.
Having screened the movie in the Southern and Central regions, people in the Northern region have been longing to sample the award winning movie.
However, Joyah said the turnout during the screening was low.
“The first screening of the film was during the Mzuzu Fashion Week and then we had another one at St John of God. As I said, the patronage was not that big but the people who came enjoyed the film,” Joyah said.
He also said that he had time to conduct a workshop for young filmmakers.
“I was impressed with the energy of the young men and women in Mzuzu are putting towards improving their skills as one of these days, we are going to watch a major production from Mzuzu,” Joyah said.
