If you are after an intelligent thriller, Awakening seems like one to grab your attention. Presented by Studio 84, Awakening is a story about a young man who suddenly starts to have strange dreams about people dying and discovers his dreams are actually premonitions to real life events. He begins to investigate his connection with the deaths and discovers a sinister plot by greater forces that have existed even before the foundations of this nation. Together with a top newspaper journalist, they race against time to find a solution to the strange events.
Directed by James Omokwe and Ethan Okwara, produced by Theresa Ananenu, Awakening stars OC Ukeje, Kehinde Bankole, Bryan Okwara, Femi Brainard and Adewale Aroloye.
The official trailer was unveiled at Lagos Comic Con a week ago with rave reviews from other movie directors, visual effects specialists and event participants.
