A statement from Uzoma Onyegbadue
Senior Project Manager
Institute of Strategic and Development Communication
Nasarawa State University, Keffi says “Angela”, is the result of a three-week residency program (Film Production Workshop: from conception to postproduction) at the National Film Institute, Jos, by Azubuike Erinugha, a Nollywood Europe producer and doctoral candidate of the Institute of Strategic and Development Communication (ISDEVCOM), Nasarawa State University Keffi.
The statement added that Mr. Azubuike Erinugha led an assemblage of professional crew comprising of students and alumni of the National Film Institute with Stephen Okoh doubling as assistant director and production manager. Veteran Nollywood actor, Chief Francis Duru led the cast together with Mrs. Emmajane Yellow-Duke.
“Angela” as produced and directed by Azubuike Erinugha, derives its significance from focus on excellence in script writing. The feature film mirrors the contemporary predicaments and consequences of dysfunctional societal upbringing. “Angela” has brought promises of expediting further exchange of ideas across institutions, especially on the film industry developments.
The Zuma film Festival is an annual event for film practitioners to network with their counterparts across film cultures.
