(CP-Africa, New York) – Nigerian filmmakers hope to entice new audiences with stronger stories and production quality. CNN interviews Obi Emelonye, one of Nollywood’s new generation film Directors determined to take the industry to the next level. Obi, a 1990 University of Nigeria Dramatic Arts graduate who later studied law in London is Director of “Echoes of War.” “Echoes of War” is the tragedy of Abdul (Anthony Akposheri) and Fatima (Judi Shekoni) – a newly-married couple separated during the 1990s war in Sierra Leone who had moved on with their lives believing one another dead. Nearly ten years later, they not only learn that they had both survived the war, but were both living in London. With both parties married and with children involved, their mutual resurrection would ultimately have far-reaching implications for their marriages. Ultimately, the fidelity of the foundations on which they had rebuilt their shattered lives is tested to the limits.
