Anyone heard of this movie? http://www.theamazinggracefilm.com Made in nigeria by Jeta Amata, the movie is about the history of the hymn, Amazing Grace. Turns out its roots are from Calabar.

Anyway, it is supposed to be out this year and I don't know if i missed it. Amata looks to have done a good job here and I'd like to know if anyone has watched it.

The film actually made it to the last film festival in Cannes and the premier was shown at Abuja last month, a friend told me that it's being shown at Silverbird Galleria , hope to go and watch it soon.

That's one Nigerian film out of so many that I'm proud of especially with the attention it has gained in the international scene. I hope the film will be a challenge for other film makers in the industry. Nigeria's music industry has gone through a lot of improvement lately so it's good for the film industry to grow as well. Let Nollywood really emulate the standards this film seems to portray! Jeta Amata, well done!

This movie was shown in the African Filmfestival (Africa in the Picture) for three days in the Netherlands. Too bad I missed it embarassed I did not even know they were showing a Nigerian movie produced by a Nigerian. I hope they will be renting them in videostores which I doubt cry Maybe they are selling the movie online, I hope so!

Re: 'Amazing Grace': The Movie By Jeta Amata by queen2(f): 9:02pm On Nov 06, 2006
Is the movie out yet?
Re: 'Amazing Grace': The Movie By Jeta Amata by gbadex1(m): 10:31pm On Nov 06, 2006
Finally! A movie that shows there are still sensible, intelligent Nigerian people producing n directing Nigerian movies fit to compete with any other foreign movie, be it at Cannes or anywhere.

It has also seperated the veterans from those slow directors.
Re: 'Amazing Grace': The Movie By Jeta Amata by yemmydavid(m): 12:07am On Nov 07, 2006
The first time i saw the preview of the movies i was like men its a MUST watch cos it looked TIGHT,
it believe its going to stand out as a NIGERIAN FILM not HOME VIDEO,
the AMATA family has been a force in the movie industry KUDOS to them
Re: 'Amazing Grace': The Movie By Jeta Amata by celemel(m): 2:34am On Nov 07, 2006
Kudos to Donald Duke too. He cordinated this, dreamt the idea and them assembled the right mix of hands, irrespective of tribe, colour, state of origin, creed and religion to do the right job. Surely, we need this kind of spirit to lift this country from the woods.

Thanks Jeta, for turning your 'madness' to progress!

I've watched it and truly, it is the B.O.M.B.!
Re: 'Amazing Grace': The Movie By Jeta Amata by obong(m): 3:18am On Nov 07, 2006
Yeah, Duke first brought up the idea of amazing grace then worked with these guys to promote it, like a huge advert for cross river state. lke the gulder race was for obudu. we need this guy in aso rock
Re: 'Amazing Grace': The Movie By Jeta Amata by spicy007(f): 9:55am On Nov 09, 2006
OMG!!!!!!
i didnt know there was a forum here on this one-of-a-kind film.
The Amazing Grace (untold story of the world's most popular hymn),

the premiere was held in Nu Metro, the Palms shopping mall, Lekki, Lagos on Thursday, the 19th of October, 2006, and BELOVED, I was privileged to attend. it was strictly by invitation, and my cousin (whose name appears first on this VIP list) got me the invites, lol, i got two actually, and went with one of my friends, and believe me, it was a night to remember,

the "who is who" of the film industry, VIPs and Dr & Mrs. Donald Duke were also in attendance,
kissLou Akande kiss (son of Chief Harry Akande, the business mogul), dakore egbuson, sasha, Kenny , D-one, ID on the street, chidi mokeme, Ego (Lagbaja's singer), the Amatas and sooo many others were in attendance.

the film is a must-watch, cos it reveals another side of the slave trade era that not even "Roots" showed.
and whether u believe it or not, amazing grace is our very own song, the song of the Calabar people,,,, and we may be more cunning than the whites, but they have always been faster and smarter than us, want to know why i said dat
the answer is in Amazing Grace,,,

and meeennn, Fred Amata and Mbong (i cant remember her surname) did a marvellous job.

the film is a must-watch and must-have,
Re: 'Amazing Grace': The Movie By Jeta Amata by chichimma(f): 2:03am On Nov 27, 2006

Re: 'Amazing Grace': The Movie By Jeta Amata by 50kobo: 9:54pm On Feb 09, 2007
@ n-guage , thanks for the you tube link.

Looks like a very intersting movie, where can i buy this movie from? we need this sort of quality in nollywood. How come the film was not widely popular?
Re: 'Amazing Grace': The Movie By Jeta Amata by Seun(m): 12:57am On Mar 17, 2007
Is it the same as the 'Amazing Grace' movie on IMDB?
http://imdb.com/title/tt0454776/
Re: 'Amazing Grace': The Movie By Jeta Amata by dblock(m): 10:02am On Mar 17, 2007
It's really confusing, because there is another Amazing grace movie tha came out recently
The people behind the Nigerian one should sue them
Re: 'Amazing Grace': The Movie By Jeta Amata by Seun(m): 11:51am On Mar 17, 2007
If anyone is going to sue, I think it's the other way round. The Hollywood Amazing Grace movie was pribably under development for a longer time, so they have more of a right to sue. Making a good movie is what's important.
Re: 'Amazing Grace': The Movie By Jeta Amata by Seun(m): 5:22pm On Jan 21, 2008
Did anyone watch this movie? I've been hearing about it.
Re: 'Amazing Grace': The Movie By Jeta Amata by tosinadeda: 12:50am On Jan 25, 2008
