If these behind-the-scenes images of new Nollywood production are anything to go by, Heaven’s Hell will be the one of the most highly anticipated films of the year. True story of a Nigerian woman who stabbed her husband multiple times to death after, her claims, of many years of domestic violence, it promises a gripping tale of terror.
As the movie shoot enters its third week, Katung Aduwak – the brain and force behind the movie- feels a responsibility to share this story. With an impressive ensemble of some of Africa’s best actors (roll call: Bimbo Akintola, OC Ukeje, Nse Ikpe Etim, Damilola Adegbite, Gideon Okeke, Linda Ejiofor, and South Africa based actor, Fabian Lojede of the series- Jacob’s Cross), and an international production team led by Jeffery Smith who has worked with stars like Rihanna, Fergie, Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer and handled productions of mega TV success like American Idol, Heaven’s Hell is set to raise the bar.
Heaven’s Hell the true story of domestic violence and terror will capture one of the most shocking incidents of family pain and tragedy. “The aim is to use the movie to enlighten Africa- as it seems domestic violence is still handled with kid gloves in this part of the world. Ultimately I want Heaven’s Hell to liberate people. I want it to inspire someone to get out of a bad relationship…whatever it can accomplish to make the world a saner place,” Katung explains.
