OWAS Mwape, Robam Mwape, Clive Mwape, Mercy Mwape, Prudence Mwape, Katongo Mwape, Maxwell Mwape and Adorah Mwape are all featuring in the thriller drama titled ‘Strictly by Invitation’, which will premiere with a red carpet in at Ster Kinekor, Arcades in Lusaka on 28th July.
The movie, by Owas Crystal Films/Old Age Productions, is a story written to mitigate the issues that have gripped marriages in society.
“Written with an eye of what has hit our Zambian society – marital killings – the characters bring to life the day-to-day activities that husbands and wives go through in order to stay together. The film is a feature and already underway into a TV series,” according to a brief given to the Weekend Mail by Owas, who co-directs the film with his brother Robam.
“Told in a typical marriage scenario, the film creates questions that society and the audience alike will debate from their perspectives.”
In the movie, Michael Lungu and Catherine are a perfect couple to the eyes of the world until Catherine is found dead with her husband present in the same room that makes all hell break loose.
Questions begin being asked: Did Michael kill his wife or something else more supernatural did it?
“The film brings a different side of gender-based violence and media challenges.”
Also featuring in the film are Webby Chiluba (Kasaka), Huruma Sungula, Poliana Tembo and Hellen Kayuni, who Owas says, have made great impact on the film.
Other films by Owas to premiere on big screen include The Wife, Ministers House, Chenda, Secrets Untold Story and A Beautiful Lie. He is also associate producer on Suwi and Mwansa the Great, Which has banked over 17 awards internationally and was nominated for the British Film and Television Awards (BAFTA).
If it was OWAS Hamadudu, Robam Hamadudu, Clive Hamadudu, Mercy Hamadudu, Prudence Hamadudu, Katongo (-: Hamadudu, Maxwell Hamadudu and Adorah Hamadudu, sembe lelo sitinagone pa Lusaka Times na ma comments ya tribalism
I am sure your Edgar Lungu will walk at that red carpet and tell you look PF have it again.
Seems you cannot think without tribalism. Your worldview is tribal, in everything you think and look for tribe linkages. What if the Mwapes have a family firm and are siblings?
Churches are all about, poor people giving money to super rich thieves.?
What if the casts in future require passionate kissing, will these relatives kiss each other passionately? Its a movie world remember!
kikik tribal pipo always think abount tribal.
Who told u that we write against some good speaking tongas?It is only few tongas like u who think abount tribe.HH is also one of few tongas who thinks abount tribe nowonder we can’t vote for him coz he came into politics thru tribalism.
I have never seen *****ic tribalists like tongas. But i love their stupidity coz they provide good mungulu comedy in our country.
COMPARE THIS FILMS TO LOVE GAMES, THIS CHINTELELWE LIVES MUCH TO BE DESIRED IN ALL RESPECTS. ZAMBIAN ACTORS SHOULD ADOPT QUALITY AND HIGH STANDARDS OF PRESENTATION FROM LOVE GAME IN ORDER TO MAKE IT IN THE FILM INDUSTRY.
Anyway I remain the Chief
