After a long almost agonizing wait we’ve finally gotten to see the official trailer for Pascal Aka’s Gold Coast Lounge.
The synopsis for Gold Coast Lounge reads; an afro-noir film, set in the nightlife of post-independent Ghana. A crime family have to unite, and clean up their act before the government shuts down their lucrative lounge. After their leader is mysteriously poisoned, it is up to Daniel – the eldest – to take power. While struggling to implement his own policies, Daniel has to overcome power struggles, love-triangles, tribalism and a murder investigation.
The film is written, directed and executive produced by Pascal Aka and is his first feature film project after announcing his retirement from directing music videos. He describes this film as an “Afro-nior“; a film noir with an African touch. Esi Yamoah also supports as Producer on this film.
