‘Up North’, ‘Lionheart’ & ‘King Of Boys’ For Hollywood Screening In US by nairaobserver2: 12:27pm On Mar 21, 2019
Three Nollywood movies – ‘Up North’, ‘Lionheart’ and ‘King of Boys’ have been selected for screening at the second edition of the ‘Nollywood In Hollywood’ on Friday and Saturday in the United States.

Organisers of the event said the screening begins on Friday evening with a red carpet and opening night screening of ‘Up North’ at the historic Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, California.

‘Up North’ stars Banky W and is directed by Tope Oshin, both of whom are in Hollywood courtesy of Air France for the event.

On Saturday, ‘Nollywood in Hollywood’ moves to the Eileen Norris Cinema Theatre at the University of Southern California.

The day kicks off with a panel discussion about current trends in ‘Nollywood’, followed by a screening of ‘LIONHEART’, the directorial debut of Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji, who also co-wrote and stars in the film.

The showcase will close with a screening of KING OF BOYS, the sophomore feature by Kemi Adetiba, whose 2016 debut film, THE WEDDING PARTY, smashed box office records to become the highest grossing Nigerian film of all time.

The showcase features screenings, networking events and parties.

‘Nollywood In Hollywood’ is the brainchild of Nigerian-American filmmaker, Ose Oyamendan, which initiative is designed to expose ‘Nollywood’ films to the capital of the world’s entertainment industry.

Oyamendan said:

“I look at it as a way of giving back to my country and broadening opportunities for Nollywood filmmakers and actors.

“Most people abroad know one side of Nigeria, the not-too-good side, now they get a chance to see another side and watch our stories.

“Thanks to our partners, Nollywood has the biggest audience in the world over the next few days”.

Gwen Deglise, the head of programming at the American Cinematheque said:

“The American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre is proud to partner with O2A Media and the USC School of Cinematic Arts for a second year to present ‘Nollywood in Hollywood’.

“We are thrilled that this event offers both our members and the larger Los Angeles film audience we serve, a window into Nigerian culture and filmmaking.”

Ideally, true.

Realistically? Not really. Because most people who would be watching these movies are African plus very few Afro Americans and Afro Caribbean ... and maybe, just maybe a smattering of white people.

I think sports and music (especially sports) have better chance of improving Nigeria's image than these so called poorly produced and poorly casted Nollywood movies.

Lionheart is anything incredible but over rated. The movie like others like phone swap, castle and castle, Abuja Wives and lots more are cool movies with good story lines and great quality delivery and acting. A sharp contrast to the typical boring nollywood movies where you already know the end from the beginning. Let's appreciate our own. Castle and castle can comfortably stand shoulder to shoulder with Hollywood's Boston Legal without the Superb acting of one and only Raymond Readington. Nigeria movies are going places.
