SPIKE LEE’S DESCRIPTION ABOUT GHANA MOVIE INDUSTRY WASN’T SMART – James Gardiner

Ghanaian Actor, James Gardiner has reacted to legendary Hollywood filmmaker Spike Lee’s claims that he was unaware that Ghana had a thriving film industry until he visited the nation as a member of the Creative Arts delegation that accompanied Vice President of the United States Kamala Harris to Ghana.

The filmmaker said he would have loved to interact with people in the film industry and exchange ideas, among other things, during an interview on Accra-based Asaase Radio’s “Da 5 Bloods.”

“I did not know that there is a thriving film industry in Ghana, I know about Nigeria. And I made the point that it was publicised that I was coming and no one approached me from the film office. I would have loved to meet the people in the film industry here [in Ghana],” he said.

James Gardiner in his response to these remarks of the award-winning American movie star stated that his response was not smart, probably because he was taken aback by the question.

He added that any smart person will not state emphatically that he was not aware that the country he was in did not have a thriving industry.

James added that he felt Spike could just have been diplomatic and suggested that there were no plans to meet people in the film industry.

He further stressed that all things considered, Spike Lee’s comment can best be described as loose talk.
