GHANA PREMIERE OF MINE YOUR OWN BUSINESS

FILM MAKERS ON TOUR OF GHANA

This week sees the countrywide launch of Mine Your Own Business in Ghana.

Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney are in Ghana this week to promote the premiere of their film across four Ghanaian television channels. The film, which will be shown at prime time on four consecutive days, means that the whole country will get to see it. Already the filmmakers have had a huge response to their visit and have received hundreds of emails of support. The week will see the filmmakers have a hectic round of media interviews. You can hear them tomorrow morning on Joy FM one of the country’s leading radio stations where they will be discussing the issue raised in MYOB with a panel of distinguished Ghanaians.

McAleer and McElhinney said they are delighted to have arranged such a comprehensive distribution of the documentary in Ghana.

“It is to be broadcast at prime time on four of the country’s main television stations and hopefully it will be seen by most of the population in this country where mining plays such a significant role in the economy.”

We are delighted at the already positive response we have had from people and the media,” they added.
