Ghanaian Filmmaker Blasts Nigerians For Expecting Lionheart To Win An Oscar but our lingua franca is English.
Ghanaian filmmaker blasts Nigerians over Lionheart themovie Oscar disqualification and said ,
‘Make films in your mother tongue not your colonial tongue’ she says.
Why are folks chastising the Academy? They have their rules. British films do not qualify for International film either because of English Language.
Oscars are American. Only their English films have that sole preserve. Deal with it.
Please go and create your own award, like the Brits did and include your films.
GI personally like that we’re being forced to embrace our local dialects. Make films in your mother tongue, not your colonial tongue. The worst films are the ones where the actors don’t understand the subtext cos English is not their first language and yet they’ll be struggling to speak with American accent! Even the teacher teaching the English is substituting He for she, or teaching your kids English vowels with vernacular pronunciation.
