The epic movie, Queen Amina produced by the man that made the movie “Living in Bondage” that birthed the phenomenon we know today as Nollywood, Okey “Paulo” Ogunjiofor, just wrapped up filming the epic movie on location in Northern Nigeria after four months of production (a month and a half for training cast and 105 days of Principal photography.) With 96 crew members and well over 2000 artists directed by the Master director of our time, Izu Ojukwu – of “76” fame.
The theme of the movie is Women Empowerment and the plight of the girl child. A global story and, an advocacy for more women in “Leadership Positions” as the world awaits the First Female American President and bemoan the plight of the missing Chibok girls.
The film is supported by the Bank of Industry through their Loan scheme facility which has already been accessed by other notable Nollywood film makers.
The Queen Amina film was selected from among three other equally big film projects from the stable of Videosonic studios for the main purpose of integrating Northern Nigeria into the main stream of film production as what obtains in the South.
The movie paraded few stars as the thrust is to discover fresh faces and new Nollywood stars. The cast includes Clarion Chulwurah, Ali Nuhu, Yakubu Mohammed, Lucy Ameh, Magaji Mijinyawa, Godwin Ogaga and Asabe Abubakar and a host of talents from Northern Nigeria.
