Sponge film to premiere in Malawi

Following the Atlanta premiere in August and its second screening in Indiana last month, Mphongo film productions finally brings ‘Sponge’ to Malawi.

Written and directed by Chawezi “Chaz” Munthali, ‘Sponge’ film will premiere in December.

According to a statement from the producers, the ones off film screening will be done in both Lilongwe’s BICC and Blantyre’s M Theatre on the 16th and 17th December 2016 respectively.

The film which was shot in Atlanta, US and Blantyre Malawi magnifies the challenges of a Malawian woman in Atlanta, USA faced when she tries to balance pleasing the society, family expectations and matters of the heart. Knowing the moral standards for women are different to that of men.

“She has to decide if love or infatuations is worth the trouble. She is torn in between two men and two standards,” the producers said in a statement.

The statement further stated that this will be a red carpet event that promises to bring a Hollywood inspired feel with a cocktail party and question and answer session with the director, executive producer and the cast.

The event which will start at 5pm will serve as both the movie screening and a networking session so that the audience can mingle and gain some new business connections.

The 89 minute film stars Faith Bvumbwe (Malawi), Victor Kumwendo (Malawi), Abby Njovu (Zambia) and Wezi Chipeta as its Executive producer.
