New York Times Hails Nigerian Film

October-1st

Nollywood released a “must watched film” this past Monday, titled, October 1, a dark psychological thriller film for Nigeria’s 54th independence day anniversary.

The film, which highlights Nigeria and the verge of independence from British colonial rule, was written by Tunde Babalola, and was produced as well as directed by Kunle Afolayan.

On its website, the film is said to be an informative and inspiring one.

“We want the younger generation to know where we are coming from and the older generation to see if we are moving in the right direction.”

Hailed by the New York Times as the ‘Martin Scorsese of Lagos’, Afolayan has continued to push back the frontiers of film making in Nigeria.
