For two local filmmakers, next Saturday is their big day on the big screen — and they are debuting it locally.

Columbus-based filmmakers Ife Oluwamuyide + Claudia Owusu are set to premiere their new film, “Ampe: Leap into the Sky, Black Girl” at the Wexner Center for the Arts on Saturday, April 29. The short film follows the lives and experiences of girls from Ghana + features both Ghana and Columbus as backdrops for scenes.
