Dear lover of the African film,
We have exciting news. Last year Nollywood Focus was part of the team that marketed the bold, spectacular and glamourous world premiere of Obi Emelonye's movie LAST FLIGHT TO ABUJA - the Nollywood Director's spellbinding follow-up to the ground-breaking The Mirror Boy, which had earlier in 2011 broken virtually all records by an African film in the United Kingdom and elsewhere.
LAST FLIGHT TO ABUJA starring Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Jim Iyke, Anthony Monjaro and Hakeem Kae-Kazim (you will remember him as Colonel Dubaku in 24 with Kiefer Sutherland) - has not only won many awards within and outside Nigeria, but has also become the longest-running film in Nigerian cinema history grossing nearly N30 million at the box office, after a successful theatrical release in UK Cinemas and after countless screenings at film festivals in countries including Canada, Egypt, and Ireland.
ABOUT THE FILM
Inspired by true events. A set of everyday Nigerian travellers board the last Flamingo Airways flight scheduled to fly from Lagos to Abuja on a fateful Friday night in 2006. The plane cruises at 30,000 feet, tranquil and on schedule. But like a bolt out of the blue, through a mixture of human error, technical failure and sheer bad luck, the plane rapidly develops major difficulties that sends it teetering to the brink of disaster.
As the pilots fight with the controls of the stricken aeroplane, a series of flashbacks unravel the twists, turns and leaps of fate that put each passenger on that flight.
Young lovers, an elderly couple, a corporate party, a sportsman on the threshold of greatness; all the passengers are caught up in the nightmare scenario and sense the final moments of their lives approach. All...except one!
What does he know? Will they survive...the Last Flight to Abuja?
