The film, Joseph, aligns with the ‘Year of Return’ (2019) and the ‘Decade of Return’ (2020-2030) currently being expressed by African leaders and global influencers as people search for answers in the present by looking to clues from the past. It is the winner of the 2020 “Best Diaspora Narrative Feature” award at the Africa Movie Academy Awards. It has been endorsed and supported by the Governments of Ghana, Jamaica, and Barbados and included in the Ghana Tourism Authority’s “Year Of Return.”
Soulidifly Productions, a film company with a mission to produce meaningful, uplifting stories that are entertaining and beautifully told, has partnered with TRIAL X FIRE, LLC, the distribution branch of Urban Home Entertainment, released Joseph to audiences everywhere on video-on-demand starting today, on Amazon Prime and Vimeo.
“Joseph will bring viewers a deeper understanding of how the search for truth can be healing, especially during times of social and political unrest,” said BK Fulton, founding chairman and CEO, Soulidifly Productions. “This film aligns with 2019’s ‘Year of Return’ and the ‘Decade of Return’ currently being expressed by African leaders and global influencers as more people search for answers in the present by looking to clues from the past.”
Winner of the 2020 “Best Diaspora Narrative Feature” award at the Africa Movie Academy Awards, Joseph was shot on location in Ghana, Jamaica, and Barbados and produced by Step by Step Productions with assistance from Soulidifly Productions. Joseph is a dramatic feature film about Joseph King, a young Jamaican doctor with a burning desire to re-connect to his family’s roots with the Ashanti tribe in Ghana. The quest to “go home” creates family conflict. Joseph’s curiosity about Africa is fueled by a friend from medical school who would boast about his homeland Ghana. His stories contradict what Joseph hears and sees about Africa in the media. A serious tragedy, a chance meeting, and an unfulfilled promise drive Joseph towards an uncertain destiny.
Joseph has been endorsed and supported by Ghana, Jamaica, and Barbados and was included in the Ghana Tourism Authority’s “Year Of Return.” The film was released theatrically in Ghana, Nigeria, Jamaica, and other Caribbean islands, and the U.S. in select AMC theaters earlier this year.
