Multi-award-winning Screenwriter Osarfo Anthony calls on American Filmmaker Spike Lee for collaboration

Popular American filmmaker and actor, Spike Lee, was part of the Creative Arts team that accompanied the Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris, during her 3-day visit to Ghana.

In an interview on Asaase Radio, the American movie star while answering questions regarding the Ghanaian film industry, said, players in the film industry have not yet approached him.

“….No one has approached me from the film industry in Ghana. I would love to meet people in the film industry but no one has approached me…” he said.

However, three days before Mr. Lee’s shocking revelation, Ghanaian entertainment journalist and screenwriter, Osarfo Anthony, who has won and placed in a number of screenwriting contests in Hollywood, shoot his shot on Instagram at the ‘BlacKkKlansman’ director.

Osarfo posted:

“The ‘BlacKkKlansman’ director, @officialspikelee, is in Ghana, West Africa.

Welcome home, sire!

Wants screenplays from Africa or written by an African?

I’m at your service ????. From Africa to Hollywood, we can make it happen.

Enjoy all the treats in the Motherland.

Namaste ????”

It’s Osarfo’s wish that as more and more African American filmmakers come to Ghana as part of the Year of Return/Beyond the Return initiative, they’ll be interested in optioning, buy, or invest in screenplays written by Ghanaians or African screenwriters.
