HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY TO ALL NIGERIANS OUT THERE!!! 53 YEARS AND COUNTING IS NO SMALL FEAT.
In lieu with today’s event marking the 53rd anniversary since Nigeria gained independence from their colonial masters, one of the the reputable film makers released a trailer for an upcoming movie titled, OCTOBER 1. The movie is produced and directed by Kunle Afolayan who has produced both The Figurine, Irapada and Phone Swap, which have earned him the respect of both film makers and viewers and a couple of awards also.
“It’s September 1960, and with Nigeria on the verge of independence from British colonial rule, a northern Nigerian Police Detective, DAN WAZIRI, is urgently despatched by the Colonial Government to the trading post town of Akote in the Western Region of Nigeria to solve a series of female murders that have struck horror in the hearts and minds of the local community. On getting to Akote, more murders are committed, and with local tension high and volatile, Waziri has a race on his hands to solve the case before even more local women are killed.
Set against the backdrop of the national celebratory mood of the impending independence, Waziri is pulled into a game of cat and mouse as he and the killer try to outwit each other… leading to the climatic end in which the life of a popular local female teacher and village belle, TAWA, is held in the balance. Waziri has to race against the clock to capture the killer, save Tawa and solve the crime before the British flag is lowered and the Nigerian flag raised on Independence Day… October 1.”
Check the trailer out below.
The movie has a cast consisting of Sadiq Daba, Demola Adedoyin, Kehinde Bankole, Kanayo O. Kanayo, Bimbo Manuel, Kunle Afolayan, David Bailie, Nick Rhys and Colin David Reese. The trailer is quite inviting and i look forward to seeing the movie once it hits the big screen.
