Rene Etta is not new in the film industry. He is one of the finest cinematographers on the continent and has worked as Director of Photography in some of Africa’s most successful film projects. Etta shot to the limelight years ago through brilliant TV commercials he and crews he worked with, made. Before THE FISHERMAN’S DAIRY and THERAPY, two of his recent works, streaming on NETFLIX, the award-winning cinematographer had accompanied scores of film projects through which some of Cameroon’s bests actors were elevated. Under the banner of GOHFA STUDIOS and with brain boxes such as Anurin Nwenembom, Itambi Delphine, Achille Brice, etc, Rene contributed enormously to building an Indie film culture that inspired many young people in the seventh art. Yet, the Buea-based dexterous camera operator prefers to let only his works tell his story. Dust was yet to settle on his recent NETFLIX achievements and prizes won from THE FISHERMAN’S DAIRY when another international assignment came calling on the filmmaker of great repute. Last week, therefore, it was announced Etta had been picked as the Director of Photography, D.O.P for STATE OF MALAMBA, an anticipated pan-African film production that will cast actors drawn from across the continent, including prominent ones such as Ramsey Nouah, John Dumelo, Van Vicker, Nadia Buari and Kenya’s Sarah Hassan. Helmed by Zimbabwean Marc T. Mandisoul,  STATE OF MALAMBA will be filmed in Johannesburg, South Africa.

ETTAAhead of the continental assignment, Rene Etta who is also the producer of CHARIOT OF THE GODS (Best Cameroonian Film - CAMIFF 2021), speaks to Apex 1 Radio. What these recent accomplishments mean to his career, how he got picked for MALAMBA and more, will constitute our conversation with the indefatigable filmmaker. Etta will be one of our special guests on AFRICAN FIESTA this Saturday, May 15, 2021 at 9:30am EST (2:30pm gmt+1).
