93Days: Church agrees to host Ebola movie premiere

House on the Rock, one of Nigeria’s biggest Christian assembly, has consented to host the Nigerian premiere of 93Days, an Ebola virus-inspired movie.

The church, in collaboration with the Bolanle Austen-Peters Production, Natives FilmWorks and Michelangelo Production, will be hosting movie buffs, celebrities and other dignitaries at The Rock Cathedral, 4th Roundabout, Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lagos, on Tuesday.

Speaking about the movie, the Senior Pastor of House on the Rock Church, Pastor Paul Adefarasin said the church was committed to nation building.

He said, “House on the Rock’s mission is to work together with everyone that is interested in building a transformed nation, a better Nigeria, and this essence ties strongly into the courage displayed by Dr. Stella Adadevoh and her colleagues who brought hope to a nation that was being threatened by devastation, at the expense of their own lives. This is the kind of love and sacrifice that can truly bring transformation to all.”

Starring Bimbo Akintola, Danny Glover, Tim Reid, Somkele Idhalama, Keppy Ekpenyong, Gideon Okeke and other talented actors, 93 Days has been regarded by movie cognoscenti as a must-watch.

Adapted after the ebola virus outbreak in Lagos, Nigeria, the movie tells a compelling story of dedication, sacrifice, resilience and the courage shown by the First Consultant Medical Team, the Lagos State & Federal Governments and well-meaning organizations in combating the Ebola virus, which broke out early 2014 in Nigeria.

 

93Days was premiered at the US Department of Heralth and Human Services (HHS) in its Hubert H. Humphery Building, Washington DC. The US premiere was attended a majority of its American cast including Hollywood actor, Danny Clover, Tim Reid, Kemi DaSilva-Ibru, the associate producer and the co-producer/executive producer, Bolanle Austen-Peters among others.

 

93Days was also selected for screening at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and will be viewed at the Isabel Bader Theatre in Toronto, Canada this week.

 

Speaking, one of the producers of the movie, Bolanle Austen-Peters said, “93 Days is a masterfully crafted story of bravery and sacrifice and is definitely a must see. It showcases the best of Nigeria; it is powerful, gripping and an emotive piece. I am more than proud to have played a part in this project.”
