The production company, Vzhun Films, has announced that its latest feature film, ‘Kpali’ featuring top Nollywood actors would be released on December 20.
Featuring Nkem ‘Osuofia’ Owoh, Linda Ejiofor, Ini Dima-Okojie, Kunle Remi and Gloria Anozie-Young among others, it is produced by Emem Ema. It is being released in collaboration with Genesis Deluxe Distribution (GDD).
Shot in different locations in Lagos and London, the movie was directed by Ladi Johnson with the story unfolding around Amaka. She’s a Nigerian professional who works in an investment bank in London. Life throws her a curveball as her UK employer suddenly has to trim its workforce, and she may lose her job. It gets complicated as her Work Visa is about to expire.
In a twist, Amaka’s employer gives her a lifeline to win a big account with a Lagos-based, Nigerian company. She must head to Nigeria with a colleague on this desperate mission. But there is a caveat. The deal must be wrapped up in 30 days or else she loses everything.
Executive producer, Abhulime Ehiagwina, said that the movie offers a gripping story that a broad spectrum of moviegoers can relate to irrespective of gender and age.
“My team and I are very pleased to present this work to viewing public after many months of lensing both in Nigeria and London. ‘Kpali’ highlights a blend of Nigerian and English cultures amplified by an array of talents and a quality cinematic delivery. The story will further enrich the conversation about Nigerian immigrants in search of greener pastures,” he said.
Producer, Emem Ema, who helms Vzhun Films also expressed her excitement to present the movie. She said, “From the standpoint of a producer, it was fascinating to see first-hand the deep connection between the actors and their roles on this project. It was a pretty intense production, and we can’t wait to bring this remarkable experience to movie fans across Nigeria this December.”
