The much talked about movie, 93 Days premiered at the highly rated Chicago International Film Festival on Thursday, October 20 and the impressive turn out of cast, crew and audience at the festival in far away United States made the day an unforgettable experience.
Danny Glover who played the role of Dr Benjamin Ohiaeri in the box-office hit movie said many good things about the movie and Nollywood in general.
According to him, the movie, 93 Days reflects the never-say-die spirit of Nigerian people. “93 Days symbolises the spirit of Nigerian people and the vibrancy of the industry. From the moment we had the script; we knew we had something special. Steve wanted me to do a cameo role, after reading the script, I realised I needed to do more than that”, he said. He promised to still keep in touch with Nollywood and said this is not the last the country will hear of him.
93 Days is based on the true story of men and women who risked their lives and made sacrifices to save us all from the consequences of an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in Nigeria. Over a 93-day period from when the Liberian Sawyer came into Nigeria with the Ebola virus, men and women from Nigeria, WHO and MSF battled with this deadly disease. Lives were lost and heroes born. At its core, 93 Days is a compelling human story of dedication, sacrifice, resilience and survival.
The movie has been enjoying favourable showing at cinemas across Nigeria.
