NOLLYWOOD FILM WITH AMERICAN APPEAL MAKES HISTORICAL LIMITED THEATRICAL RELEASE ACROSS THE USA AND AFRICA
“Paparazzi Eye in the Dark” is a romantic mystery feature film that has cross over potential and is seeking limited theatrical screenings across the USA and Africa. The aforementioned movie features A-List Nollywood actors from Africa and B-List talent from America. The English language film, shot in Atlanta, Georgia has much higher standards of production than most of its genre and tells the story of an aspiring photographer (Van Vicker) who enters the lucrative world of paparazzi photography and unwittingly captures a major scoop that puts him in the center of the city's biggest murder mystery. The film features Nollywood's sexiest A-List actor Van Vicker, famed Nigerian director/actor TChidi Chikere, Nigerian actress JJ Bunny, Ghanaian recording artist Koby Maxwell, Nigerian/American actor Chet Anekwe, American actress Syr Law of Tyler Perry's”Diary of a Mad Black Woman”, and Bayo Akinfemi of the Hollywood Blockbusters “The Tuxedo” and “Bullet Proof Monk”. It's also directed by Nigeria's Bayo Akinfemi, cinematography and editing by American filmmaker Black Magic Tim, and produced by Ghana's Koby Maxwell and Liberia's Dr. Clarice Ford-Kulah, and executive produced by Great Moments Productions.
Hoping to be the breakthrough film to introduce the fast growing Nollywood subculture to mainstream audiences, the film is unique because it is a part of an ongoing revolution in Nollywood filmmaking where quality is now put before quantity. It features a strikingly beautiful and universal cast, incredible crossover music, excellent sound/picture quality, and professional acting. It appeals to universal audience and is a collaborative effort of Nigerian, Ghanaian, American, Jamaican, and a host of other African countries' talents and is the first to propose a theatrical release of this magnitude. The film has gotten much support from various businesses, agencies, and African press, but is currently extending its ad campaign to domestic markets reaching its core fans in the United States and Africa. To date, Paparazzi Eye in the Dark has won 5 NAFCA Awards and been nominated for 4 Ghana Movie Awards, which will be held in Ghana on December 25, 2011. Please join us on December 9, 2011 (6 PM) at the Silverbird, Ghana for the premiere of Paparazzi Eye in the Dark.
