Ghetto Machete is a true story adapted and developed by Martin Aggrey, a Kenyan content developer.
“Through the assistance of an amazing research team of 5, Nasha Dee, Priscilla Oketch (karee), Martha Morshy, Jane Gee and Mercy Shee, we developed a script that could depict what goes around the city in the night and depicts how ghetto lives are”, said Martin.
According to the film director, this movie will explore a wide range of themes/topics, among those being Justice, Vengeance, Friendship, Security, Love, Fate, corruption, Rape, Murder, Drug trafficking, Robbery and kidnapping.
“Basically I need this movie to connect with the audience. I know a lot of people who normally ask, how do these things operate or like why do people do drugs, why are some ladies strippers? I get a lot of such questions. I always give them one answer, I am going to do a movie soon with all these topics. I want the audience to first understand life in the ghetto. Secondly, people have the mentality that ghettos are so insecure and very risky. I want to do away with this and show them what people believe and what really happens. I want the audience to learn that not everyone who gets involved with crime is a criminal, not everyone who stays in the ghetto is a criminal, and most of these guys are so good. I want my audience to learn that one can do a job not because they love the job but because they have no other alternative (depicted from Caroline in her work as a club dancer to pay her mother’s bills).
“I hope Kenyans will love it and the trailer is coming out soon, so watch out for it. I'd also want to make a call out to production companies in Kenya, let’s come together, work as a team and take the Kenyan film industry to another level. Ghetto Machete will speak more about the level that I am talking about.
“I would also love the audience to understand how to solve situations in different scenarios, be it a kidnapping or corruption. This movie will help the audience develop skills towards fast, skilful reactions on urgent occurrences”, said Aggrey.
