Actress and film producer Rabby Bray has stated that her upcoming movie ‘Drops of Happiness’ will not just entertain viewers but also inspire young people. She said the story was centered on highlighting some of the challenges young graduates encounter such as unemployment. She added that the movie also projected the possibility of surmounting such obstacles by having a positive mindset and a strong will to succeed. She stated this in an interview on the ‘Saving the Arts’ online series on Friday from her office in Accra.
Despite having a successful career both in acting and in the corporate world, actress Rabby Bray still finds time to do some philanthropic works as well as motivate the youth through her films. Her latest but yet to be released movie ‘Drops of Happiness’, embodies Rabby’s concern for the youth. ” Drops of Happiness’ is about youth unemployment in Ghana. I took the story from a real life situation of a university classmate of mine during my first degree, who despite being one of the best students in the class, still didn’t have a job years after graduation. These are some of the issues we experience in life that need to be discussed. And, if as creative minds, we cannot use the medium available to us to do this, then I don’t know what we are doing”, she said.
The movie ‘Drops of Happiness’ was to be premiered a few weeks to the announcement of the curfew in Accra by the President of Ghana as a result of the Coronavirus global pandemic. However, actress Rabby Bray assured the public that the movie will definitely be premiered once the situation is calm. “The fact that I didn’t premiere the movie as scheduled earlier, does not mean that I will never premiere it. So, once we adapt ways of safely living with the Coronavirus, I will definitely premiere the movie”, she explained.
The movie ‘Drops of Happiness’ features award winning actor Adjetey Anang, Fiifi Coleman, Qwesi Blay and others. The movie was directed by Salifu Zakari and produced by Rabby Bray.
