From one of the most prolific movie making countries in the world comes three Nollywood gems set to entertain both loyal enthusiasts and newcomers to the genre. Ster-Kinekor Theatres, South Africa’s largest film distributor will soon be screening the latest in Nollywood films at select cinemas. Nollywood is Nigeria’s Hollywood and produces films that have become a world phenomenon, screening across the globe from the USA to South Africa. In only a few short decades, Nollywood has grown to become the second largest film industry worldwide, generating $286 million dollars per year for the Nigerian economy. Over the years Nollywood films have become a firm favourite, certainly among African audiences, and now we can enjoy some of the best titles at Ster-Kinekor Theatres this July and August.
Ster-Kinekor Theatres is proud to introduce the following titles to fans:
Inale – a Musical Drama - 27 July 2012
Experience the trials and tribulations of two communities trying to maintain a peaceful co-existence. This story is a fictional expression of a traditional history that seeks to imitate the story of modern Nigeria with the challenges of communal tensions and conflicts. It is also a story that conceptualises the essence of true love, a love that has been told through the ages through the true beauty of songs. The film stars Caroline Chikezie, Hakeem Kazeem, Ini Edo, Dede Mabiaku and Keppy Ekpenyong.
Untamed – A Romance – 10 August 2012
Patience Ozorkwo, Van Vicker, Chinwe Isaac and Deborah King, come together to tell a story of betrayal and devastation. In this intense movie, Vera is caught cheating by her lover Alice at a party that takes place at a gay wedding. You would think this is as bad as it gets, but it’s not. Vera’s marriage to a complete stranger, Johnny, and the sudden realisation of her new found sexuality leaves Alice completely shattered.
Spirit of the Assassin (The Talisman) – An Action/Adventure – 24 August 2012
It has been said that this action packed adventure is a Nollywood block buster of Hollywood standards. Andy Boyo plays a man who was once a most feared, high-profile assassin, who today prowls the earth by inhabiting a wide range of violent characters. It is up to a descendant “Frederick Leornard” and a policeman played by the lead actor Yemi Blaq to battle an enemy that always seems to come back. Look forward to seeing Yemi Blaq, Frederick Leonard, Constance Okoro, Hakeem Rahman and Faith Stephen in this smash hit!
These titles can be seen at the following Ster-Kinekor outlets:
Cape Town: Parow Centre
Kwa-Zulu Natal: Gateway
