Strangers, the award-winning film, has been given a sneak peek by the press and movie critics ahead of its April 29 release.
Strangers is based on true events and is regarded as a story of resilience, optimism, and heroism.
The film, directed by Biodun Stephen, will be released in theatres on Friday, April 29.
Strangers have already won the Gold prize for Directing at the Los Angeles International Independent Film Awards.
The story chronicles the life of a young child from a remote town who has been untouched by civilization but has been struck by tragic circumstances that have altered the direction of his life.
The executive producer, Banji Adesanmi; director, Biodun Stephen, as well as cast members Lateef Adedimeji, Chris Iheuwa, and Taiwo Ibikunle, media critics, and pupils from Doregos Private Academy, attended the screening in Lagos on Thursday.
Strangers is a first-person narrative that is both heartbreaking and motivating, and it is expertly portrayed by a group of actors who have established their acting chops. Lateef Adedimeji, Bimbo Oshin, Bolaji Ogunmola, Debbie Felix, Femi Adebayo, Ndamo Damarise, Chris Iheuwa, Jide Kosoko, Bimbo Akintola, Mide Glover, and Nonso Odogwu are among the A-list actors who appear in Strangers.
The movie’s Executive Producer, Banji Adesanmi, stated he was inspired to make the film because of the tenacity of the persons engaged in the true-life events.
“Strangers chronicles a series of despairing events with miraculous outcomes. It is a story that is sweet to hear. I decided to adapt it into a screenplay and joined forces with notable figures that can translate it into a captivating motion picture. The international recognition for the movie is a testament to this.”
With this, I believe Nollywood is on the rise.
