The House on the Rock Church, Natives FilmWorks, Michelangelo Productions and the Bolanle Austen-Peters Production have joined forces to host the Nigerian Premiere of the Nigerian produced Film – 93 Days, next Tuesday on September 13, 2016, at The Rock Cathedral, 4th Roundabout, Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lagos.
93 Days is a compelling story of dedication, sacrifice and resilience which celebrates the courage shown by the First Consultant Medical Team, the Lagos State & Federal Governments and well-meaning organisations in combating the Ebola virus, which broke out early 2014 in Nigeria and is brought to life by Bimbo Akintola, Danny Glover, Tim Reid, Somkele Idhalama, Keppy Ekpenyong and Gideon Okeke.
One note worthy character is the late Dr. Stella Adadevoh whose role is played by renowned Nigerian actress, Bimbo Akintola. Working with her younger colleagues, her early detection of the disease in a patient and insistence on treating him contributed greatly to limiting the spread of the disease in our nation. This powerful movie has the central themes of triumph, heroism and a country’s determination to rise above the storm. 93 Days tells the story of greatness and drives home the importance of unity in conquering and overcoming challenges.
The real Stella Adadevoh
One of the Producers of the movie, Bolanle Austen-Peters in her statement 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.”
Speaking on The House on the Rock Partnership with these notable bodies, the Senior Pastor of all House on the Rock Churches, Pastor Paul Adefarasin said, “House on the Rock’s mission is to work together with everyone that is invested 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.”
The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), widely recognized for showing the most outstanding films from around the world, has selected 93 Days for screening at the Isabel Bader Theatre in Toronto, Canada this week. But first, the U.S Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) were honoured with an exclusive screening of the movie last weekend, in its Hubert H. Humphrey Building, Washington DC. And all the officials present loved it.
