Happy New Year Guys,

We hope Y’all enjoyed the holidays!

We were looking through 2019 movie trailers and came across “4th republic the movie”  which is Produced by Bem Pever, written by Zainab Omaki, Emil B. Garuba and directed by our very own Ishaya Bako who was the winner of our 2017  documentary category for his documentary Silent Tears.

4th Republic highlights the challenges a strong woman (Mabel), played by Kate Henshaw faces as she seeks to attain a seat of Government in Nigeria to foster justice and democracy and basically change the political scene in Nigeria positively, The movie also shows how difficult it is for women to hold high offices in government.

We did some research and found that about 50% of the population in Nigeria is female yet only about 6% of Federal legislative positions are occupied by women and more interesting is the fact that in the history of Nigeria no Female has ever held a Gubernatorial position.

The movie is star studded with the likes of Kate Henshaw, Linda Ejiofor, Bimbo Manuel and many more. 4th republic would soon grace our screens and it’s definitely one you should watch out for!!! We would keep you posted on the release date. See trailer here

The movie which is centered in Nigeria’s colonial era tells a love story filled with twists and turns of an  English documentary photographer who falls in love with a Nigerian girl who was accused of being a witch living under subhuman conditions, in a witches lair  in the middle of the jungle.

Though an official trailer is not out yet but our minds can’t help but wonder and imagine what a beautiful, powerful and culturally filled movie this would be.

Kudos to director Ifan Ifeanyi Micheal and we can’t wait to see this Movie!
