Top Ghanaian actor turned producer and director Van Vicker seems to be making waves in the industry as his fourth movie, produced and directed by him, premieres on August 3.
The movie, ‘The Hands of Time’, is expected to make a good impression on movie enthusiasts about his Sky Orange Productions. It stars top actors Nadia Buari, Kofi Adjorlolo, Van Vicker himself, Phoebe Evwuraye, and a host of others. Reggie Rockstone and DJ Black of Joy FM also made special appearances. The movie is full of suspense and comes with some action-packed scenes.
He is currently about to direct his fifth movie with the working titled ‘Lost’. Among his previous productions are ‘Friday Night’ (2008), ‘Raj’ (2010), ‘The Hands of Time’, (September 2012) and ‘Joni Waka’ (November 2012).
Sometime ago, producer/director Socrates Sarfo described movie premiering as a waste of time, energy and money but other producers like Shirley Frimpong Manso and Abdul Salam saw it as an avenue to raise more awareness about the quality of their movies.
Van is definitely sharing Salam and Shirley’s opinion, hence his premiere which is being supported by rLG, and Baileys.
‘The Hands Of Time’ tells a story of two sisters Dantee (Nadia Buari) and Phyll (Phoebe) who got separated when a wealthy man adopted Phyll as his only child.
He willed everything he had including his multinational insurance company to her on his dying bed. Kwabena (Kofi Adjorlolo), the husband of Phyll, was aware of her father’s wealth and had his own plans.
Years after her father’s death, Phyll decides to search for her older sister Dantee. But her husband made a plan to stop her and take over her property. There the intrigue sets in as she unfortunately met her death.
Her sister Dantee, who is gifted with seeing visions, after 20 years returns to find the killers of her sister and recover what rightfully belongs to her sister.
Last Friday, there was a press viewing of the movie and after that, Van interacted with the media about the challenges they encountered in making the movie.
