You premiered a movie some weeks back, can you tell us about it?
Itara Ife is the title (zealous Passion) a pantomime movie, non-narrative not subtitled, a romantic non-dialogue movie was premiered recently. We have sponsors who really made the day a memorable one.
I got a revelation through a dream I had some time back.
And I was inspired, very challenging due to the fact that from the beginning to the end of the movie no word was spoken.
Who are the cast and what is the movie all about?
We have lovely and talented cast on board, the likes of Femi Adebayo, Rycardo Agbor, Jaye Kuti,She Baby,Wazo, Leye Adenshile, Queen Oluwa. It was directed by Samson Adebayo and marketed by Toymax Holdings.
The movie is about love and ardent passion, to love is not a crime, maybe it is ardent passion. Richard began to suspect and accommodate unbridled thought towards his jealously guided relationship.
Evidences that seem to emphasize the authenticity of the cheating nature of his partner doesn’t help matters though untrue. Time ran out on Richard before the real picture was made clear to him, but not before many accidental deaths surfaced leading to the path of inevitable cruel judgment. It was shot in three countries.
Why a non-dialogue movie?
Communication is both verbal and non verbal, this is a new invention in Nollywood that Shebaby Productions have the privilege to pioneer.
