It’s always a good thing when Nollywood films are recognised at international film festivals, and the latest movie to bag an award through this medium is Ego Boyo’s crime thriller The Ghost andTthe House of Truth, which premiered at the Urbanworld Film Festival in New York. Boyo has been involved in a number of projects since starring the beloved 90’s show Checkmate, but The Ghost and The House of Truth takes on more cinematic magnitude.
The movie is directed by Akin Omotosho, and follows the story of a counselor whose 5-year-old daughter goes missing. Frustrated with the police investigation, she rakes it upon herself to catch her perpetrator, but as time runs out things take an unexpected turn. Winning the Grand Jury Prize for Best World Narrative at the Urbanworld Film Festival will undoubtedly facilitate the film’s publicity. The movie stars Tope Tedela, Kate Henshaw, Susan Wokoma, Seun Ajayi, Kemi Lala Akindoju and Uzo Osimpka.
