Those who missed a chance to watch Shemu Joyah’s latest movie The Last Fishing Boat when it premiered in Blantyre have a chance to watch it as it returns to Blantyre’s Robin’s Park this Monday afternoon.
According to announcements being made through a public address system in the city, the producer decided to bring the movie back to Blantyre after many complained that they had not seen it. “And Christmas is the right time for doing that,” the voice said over the PA.
“This is a good movie, it was worth spending time on. It is my wish that Malawi should have a lot of Joyahs so that the country’s film industry grows to the level of Nollywood, South Africa. They also started like us, but if you look at where they are, they are a force to reckon with,” said one fan, Mercy Jere, after the Lilongwe screening of the film.
While many echoed her sentiments that they enjoyed the movie, some felt some scenes are way too obscene for Malawians.
The Last Fishing Boat is a movie about the differences in culture in a love story that pulls together a purely traditional Yao woman and a visiting book publisher tourist.
The movie has been taken to Lilongwe and Mzuzu and is now back to Blantyre.
