Old-timer movie actress, Pascaline Edwards has lamented over the poor content of Ghanaian films in recent times, compared to the type of films they used to produce back in their days.
The durable movie veteran daunt this in a discussion with Chrystal Kwami-Aryee on Simply Showbiz on TV3, Saturday, March 27.
When asked about her point of view on the content of movies in recent times, Ms. Edwards answered thus, “well I will say that there are contents, but one thing I don’t understand, for example, between the two of us, let’s say I have bad content and he has a good one, I with the bad content gets the spot and he with the good one doesn’t, so at the end of the day, I mean we are humans, everybody ends up doing bad contents”.
“I’ve told people a lot, I started saying this years ago, if you want to see change, be the change. But nobody wants to be the change, those days when they give you an award, you walk with pride but these days somebody sits in their home and decides to give awards, I don’t believe in the awards anymore because I can just do a video and I’m awarded for being that”. She went on to describe what bad content is by saying: “bad content means, in our culture, there are certain things we don’t say so we don’t translate it into the movies, bad content means that we don’t disrespect our parents but we show movies with all the disrespect, so what are we teaching the younger generations?”.
