The Flying Stars will make its African premiere at the Black Star International Film Festival in Accra, Ghana on August 25.
The Flying Stars plays on the opening day of Black Star, at 6:30 pm at James Town (Brazil House).
Filmmakers Allan and Ngardy are excited that their film is reaching Africa. Ghana lies near Sierra Leone, just east and also nestled against the Atlantic Ocean. The amputees in The Flying Stars have often played fellow amputees in Ghana in tournaments.
