Swangz Avenue premieres 'Taama': Second short film hits screens this Friday
Swangz Avenue is gearing up for the premiere of its latest short film, "Taama," marking a significant addition to its growing cinematic repertoire. Following the success of their debut film, "Rolex," this 15-minute visual masterpiece is poised to captivate audiences with a thrilling horror narrative rooted in real-life events.
Director Arthur Nsubuga revealed that "Taama" explores the horror genre, drawing inspiration from conversations with scriptwriter Charles Kasozi about real-life experiences. Nsubuga handpicked a talented cast, including Christiano Okitwi, Shanitah Musa Zubedah, and Daniel Mushabe, based on his extensive experience in the Ugandan film industry and previous collaborations with these accomplished actors.
Scheduled for release on Swangz Avenue's official YouTube channel on Friday, November 17th, this week, "Taama" unfolds against the backdrop of Kampala. The narrative weaves a cautionary tale about the pitfalls of easy success as a kanaabe (washing bay worker) sees his newfound fortunes transform into a nightmarish ordeal.
Director Arthur expressed the production house's evolution, stating, "We have been telling stories through music and television commercials for the past decade, and it is high time we translated these stories to the cinema. This is yet another step towards that agenda."
Swangz Avenue boasts a rich history of producing memorable television shows like Tusker Malt Conversessions. Additionally, the production house has contributed to the visual success of music superstars, including Azawi, Bebe Cool, Sheebah, Spice Diana, Vinka, and Winnie Nwagi, through its music video productions.
As part of its commitment to accessibility, the upcoming film "Taama" will be available for streaming free of charge, allowing a wide audience to enjoy the latest cinematic creation from Swangz Avenue.
