A new romantic comedy movie by Nicole Amarteifio will premiere at New York African Film Festival (NYAFF) in the United States of America.
It wil be held at the Maysles Cinema on Friday, June 8, 2018, followed by a Question and Answer session with Amarteifio, known for creating web series ‘An African City.’
The movie ‘Before The Vows‘ tells the story of Afua, a modern day Ghanaian woman with plans to marry her fiancé Nii.
The only problem is, Afua is not sure she believes in marriage.
Her divorced parents, an unbearable stepmother, and Nii’s bickering married parents, cause Afua to doubt the very thing planned for just a few weeks away from her wedding.
After watching Afua prance around town with her fiancé – selecting a cake, finalizing decorations and altering her dress – we then see her start questioning what makes a marriage truly work.
And with nostalgic feelings for a former crush, Afua devises an unconventional plan to ensure that her and Nii embark on a long and happy marriage. However, the very plan devised to help them, is the same plan that may harm them – even before their intended “I do’s.”
The movie stars John Dumelo, Maame Adjei, Berla Mundi, Jeffery Forson and Emeli Nsingi Nkosi.
