I’d be more careful about using churches in movies –Bank Anthony
Movie producer, Funmiade Bank Anthony, has vowed to avoid using churches in her movies following the backlash she recently received from some members of the Celestial Church of Christ.
She had used some people portrayed as members of the church in her recent movie –Juba – which the church members found distasteful.
In an interview with the Punch Saturday Beats, she described the inspiration behind the movie as the way human beings might delay in answering God’s call, adding that going forward, she would be more careful about using churches in her movies.
“The movie is about how individuals may feel they still have enough time to achieve what they want before answering the call of God. I have produced several movies, I felt uncomfortable when the message of my movie was misinterpreted by some members of the Celestial Church (of Christ). Everyone cannot interpret a movie the same way.
“I would try to avoid using any church in my movie; not only ‘Celestial Churches’. If I am going to produce any other movie that has to do with a church, I would not use a known church because their doctrine may not be in line with what I am trying to portray in my movie,” she told Saturday Beats.
