Having spent most of the year traveling to film festivals and promoting her short film Kwaku Ananse, award-winning filmmaker Akosua Adoma Owusu is back in Ghana preparing to celebrate the reviving of the Rex Cinema.


Owusu’s vision was to transform the Rex Cinema in Accra into a creative space where young Ghanaians could receive both encouragement and training for their own creative pursuits. She launched a very successful Kickstarter campaign, with which she raised over $9,000 for the Save the Rex! Initiative.

Now, after a lot of hard work, Akosua Adoma is excited to announce the details for the Rex Cinema’s celebratory re-opening, which is scheduled for this Saturday, 7th December at 6pm and promises to be as inspiring as it will be exciting. Ebo Taylor is scheduled to perform, as are This House is Not For Sale, Nana Asaase, DJ Kobby Graham, and the Nokoyedzen Music and Dance Cultural Troupe.


In addition, the film, Perished Diamonds by Anita Afonu, and Akosua Adoma Owusu’s own Kwaku Ananse, will be screened during the event.

Owusu’s hope is that this event marks the beginning of a resurgence of the Ghanaian creative community, and that the Rex Cinema will be at the heart of it.

Akosua Adoma Owusu is currently developing her feature debut, Black Sunshine, which recently won the ARTE International Prize at Durban FilmMart and funding support by The Creative Capital Foundation.

The event is in collaboration with Alliance Francaise, Institut Francais, Republic Bar & Grill, and Accra [dot] Alt.
