The screening of award-winning director Frank Orji’s latest short film “The Wrong Girl” produced in conjunction with AACA Film & Acting School, will take place in Rosebank in April. The Wrong Girl is about an undercover Hawks agent named Fhatuwani who gets herself kidnapped by three amateur thugs – Moses, Dawg, and Chekers – to infiltrate and take down a vicious human trafficking operation masterminded by Goty. The twists and turns are what make the story intriguing. As if that was not enough, throughout the short film, Goty is unaware of the truth her supposed mother is hiding.
AACA Film & Acting School students Palesa Sehlare plays the lead, Fhatuwani, Ntando Mthembu plays Moses, Mpho Malange plays Chekers and Sean O’niel plays Dawg. The school’s alumni Nwabisa Noguba plays Goty.
Rounding up the cast are music executive Stanley Khoza who is paired with Fhatuwani at the Hawks office, Muvhango actresses, Maumela Mahuwa who plays a cop, and Eunice Mabeta who plays Goty’s mother. Maumela Mahuwa has been part of the popular SABC 2 soapie for over 10 years playing the family matriarch Suzan Mukwevho, with Eunice Mabeta playing the aunt.
Frank Orji is known for telling engaging African stories through art, be it music, books, or films. His upcoming feature film is currently in pre-production, with shooting scheduled for later this year.
