Rogers Ofime‘s thriller Oloibiri is set to hit cinemas across Nigeria later this month, but have you seen the movie’s first teaser?
Directed by U.S director, Curtis Graham it features Richard Mofe Damijo, Olu Jacobs, Taiwo Ajai Lycett, Ivie Okujaye, William R. Moses, Daniel K. Daniel and Ifeanyi Williams.
The movie based on the real-life Oloibiri where crude oil was first discovered in Nigeria will be screened at the famous Cannes Film Festival in France on between May 19 and 22.
Part of its synopsis reads: Two decades after the last drop of crude oil was drilled from Oloibiri, two of its sons, “Timipre’, and “Gunpowder”, are disenchanted with the exploitation of their resources by the oil companies. While “Timipre” expresses his disenchantment through lamentations and regret, and regret, the younger “Gunpowder”, is driven to violent extremes.
