The trailer for the Christmas blockbuster movie, “God Calling” released by Heart In Motion (HIM) Pictures in November has gone viral on sharing platforms and garnered millions of views across several countries. The movie was featured on CNN’s African Voices during production, and was recently listed by CNN Africa as one of the movies to look forward to during this yuletide season.
In addition to the varying accolades, the production has received attention for its gripping story and quality of special effects. For its message, it was featured at The Experience 13, the largest gospel concert in Africa. This was the first time The Experience has featured a movie in all its years of existence.
The production was funded by Executive Producers such as Ibukun Awosika, Derin Adeyokunnu, Yomi Jemibewon, Patricia Jemibewon, Uzo Nwagwu, Chijioke Uwaegbute, Karibi Fubara, ZeeZee Ihe-Okuneye, Olalekan Olude, Opeyemi Awoyemi, Dolapo Awosika, Enyi Omeruah, Chioma ‘Chigul’ Omeruah, Chukuka Chukuma and Ekeinde Ohiwerei.
“God Calling” is a film which seeks to encourage people to recognize and pursue their purpose by anchoring themselves in God. It imaginatively shines a spotlight on modern day spirituality, as it chronicles the life of Sade who suffers a personal tragedy and is taken on a journey of self-discovery and faith which transforms the lives all those around her.
Written and directed by BB Sasore, creator of Before 30 and Banana Island Ghost, God Calling will be released nationwide on the 21st of December and features a stellar cast made up of Zainab Balogun, Karibi Fubara, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Onyeka Onwenu, Nkem Owoh, Tina Mba, Diana Egwuatu and a host of others.
According to the filmmaker, BB Sasore, the Nigerian film industry has so much potential but lacks the infrastructure and resources to compete globally. “For this project to come into fruition, I had to collaborate with like minds who believe the Nigerian industry has great potential and needs to be increasingly supported as one of the country’s largest non-oil exports.”
God Calling will be released across all cinemas nationwide on Friday December 21st, 2018. For more on the movie and to follow the movement, visit the social media handles below.
