The makers of ‘Terminus‘ revealed on Wednesday that the film is scheduled for official release on 7th January 2022. The film is a crime thriller that seeks to create awareness about the dangers of the activities of big pharma and pharmaceutical products mostly shipped to Africa and some other parts of the world. Terminus was shot entirely in Ghana by production companies, Cine-God Studios and MK Content, led by Abu Iddris and Mawuko Kuadzi respectively. It was executive produced by Rita Efuah Baatimah & Gabriel Nyanin Baatimah, owners of City Outlook Entertainment.
Speaking at the press conference, writer, director and co-producer Abu Iddris said ‘Terminus film was made to give worth to audience’s time and money, like on any good cinema day out to see a world standard masterpiece.” He also stressed, “This is a film you pay for and want to pay for again for a repeat of the show”.
Rita Afua Baatimah, Executive Producer stated, “Regardless of all the challenges we faced as a team, I’m proud to say we pulled through it beautifully. I love everything about Terminus most especially its subject of concern.”
The film also appears to have an agenda of woman empowerment. Terminus showcases the ingenious ways by which women can showcase their skills, drive intellect and vision to disrupt the male-dominated industry. In the film, women are seen in some very important positions that are otherwise most often occupied by men. It introduces to audiences, the first and independent Ghanaian female president whose government faces the toughest of tests any nation can survive, a female director of operations at the organized crimes Ghana, etc.
Mawuko Kuadzi, C.E.O of MK Content and MK Casting added that Terminus amplifies the conversation about global health care. And that, choosing to tell a fictional yet possible story of the reality of the pharmaceutical industries, is purely to educate through entertainment, and not to ridicule any specific pharmaceutical company or any known product.
The film’s cast lineup includes Adjetey Annan, Helen Lois, Oscar Provencal, Beverly Afaglo, Salma Mumin, Gina Castle, Andrew Tandoh Adote, Manaf Yussif, Joseph Otsiman, Anthony Woode, Jeffery Nortey, Joseph Otsiman, Kobina Sam and Cecilia Anno-Banieh.
