The British Council, Thursday, hosted the cast and crew of ‘FIFTY’ to a pre-premiere cocktail at Stephen St. Kitchen, London as part of the build-up to tomorrow’s BFI London premiere. The premiere will hold at the Vue 7 Cinema, Leicester Square, London.
Earlier in the year, ‘Fifty’ was selected under the ‘Love Category’ amongst a diverse selection of films and events on the BFI London Festival programme.
‘Fifty’ is perfectly suited to this year’s festival theme ‘The Year of the Strong Woman’; a fitting theme for this riveting exploration of love and lust, power and rivalry, seduction and infidelity.
The film stars Ireti Doyle, Dakore Egbuson, Omoni Oboli and Nse Ikpe-Etim. Set in Lagos, a city of disproportionate and breathtaking contrasts, ‘Fifty’ celebrates the pulse and energy of this fast developing metropolis and explores the diversities and complexities of its colourful people through the lenses of its women.
‘Fifty’ will have its special grand Nigerian premiere on December 13 at Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
