Is The President Dead Movie Tackles Prevailing Governance Issues
It is probably one of the best movies to have ever been produced in Malawi since the local film industry (Mollywood) rose from its deathbed.
In other words, it is an award-winning movie of the year 2023 if its quality production and relevance is anything to go by.
Right from the choice of the cast to the theme, Is the President Dead movie features Malawi’s creams of acting and mirrors one of the serious governance issues (corruption) which is currently affecting the country.
Edwin Chonde, Hope Bemberezi Chisanu, Joyce Chavula-Mhango, Flora Suya, Sammy Katengeza, Valentino Molosen McPherson Chatama and Kelvin Ngoma are some of the cast of the prestigious movie.
It is an open secret that Malawi is grappling with the effects of corruption, one of the major threats to good political governance. And ‘Is The President Dead’ movie centers around the malpractice to expose its grave impact on overall governance.
Ironically, the title of the movie speaks the volumes by posing a big question whether the captain of the sinking ship is dead or alive to be in charge.
