House on the Rock church in collaboration with Natives FilmsWorks, Michelangelo Productions and the Bolanle Austen-Peters Production will premiere the highly anticipated Steve Gukas film – 93 Days.
The premiere, which holds on Tuesday, September 13, 2016 at the Rock Cathedral, Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lagos, is part of the church’s campaign to promote a purposeful leadership in Nigeria. It will be the third movie premiere of the renowned church. Last year, it premiered Selma and Captive which featured award -winning Nigerian actor David Oyelowo.
The Senior Pastor of all House on the Rock Churches, Pastor Paul Adefarasin, while speaking on The House on the Rock Partnership with these notable bodies, said, “House on the Rock’s mission is to work together with everyone that is invested in building a transformed nation, a better Nigeria, and this essence ties strongly into the courage displayed by Dr Stella Adadevoh and her colleagues who brought hope to a nation that was being threatened by devastation, at the expense of their own lives. This is the kind of love and sacrifice that can truly bring transformation to all.”
The star-studded 93 Days movie, which star Bimbo Akintola, Danny Glover, Tim Reid, Somkele Idhalama, Keppy Ekpenyong, Gideon Okeke and other talented actors, is a compelling story of dedication, sacrifice and resilience which celebrates the courage shown by the First Consultant Medical Team, the Lagos State & Federal Governments and well-meaning organisations in combating the Ebola virus, which broke out early 2014 in Nigeria.
Bimbo Akintola portrays the late Dr Stella Adadevoh who worked with her younger colleagues, and whose early detection of the Ebola virus in a patient and insistence on treating him contributed greatly to limiting the spread of the disease in Nigeria.
The film also highlighted the rapid response of the Lagos State Government and its collaboration with other well-meaning organisations in combating the deadly virus which was aptly themed: ‘The Power of COLLABORATION.’
93 Days is also among the selected Nigerian films to be screened at The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in September.
