Movie “Ties That Bind” will shake you to the feet

Leila Djansi strode into Ghana from her California base together with the Turning Point Pictures crew with a mission, to help raise standards and set a new bar possibly, for African Movies. She felt so much of the emphasis has been on love, too much romance, a lot less of a didactic depiction of true culture, and a fizzling value system that African Movies were renowned for, in favor of explicit sexuality, and her entry has been nothing but success so far. Her earlier production, a collaborative effort with Akofa Asiedu for the movie “I sing of a well” was very good and even won an award, although the aftermath clash of personalities that followed after wasn’t healthy for the industry. Deciding to make solo pursuits therefore, led to other movie projects including “Ties that Bind.” The rumor was previously out about the work that had gone into it, so we are not surprised by the beautiful masterpiece that Leila, the crew and cast have finally come up with.

Ties That Bind “tells the story of 3 women (Nollywood diva Omotola Jalade, Ghanaian star Ama K Abrebrese, and Hollywood actress Kimberly Elise) from different walks of life, bound together by a similar pain; the loss of a child. In a destined meeting, in a small village, the women journey together to redemption, love, life and forgiveness as they renovate a dilapidated clinic for the villagers.”
Also starring are Randal Batinkoff (Kick-Ass) and Ebbe Bassey, who has co-starred in 2 short films for Shadow and Act Filmmaker Challenge winner, Nikyatu Jusu (African Booty Scratcher and Say Grace Before Drowning).

Below is an unrated version of the trailer and we hope you like it:
