93 Days: A Nation’s Story on Survival and Sacrifice
It was a compelling human story of dedication, sacrifice, resilience and survival.
The movie demonstrated the bravery of the late Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh and her colleagues from their encounter with the late American-Liberian, Patrick Sawyer, who was the index case of the Ebola Virus.
The movie was, however, centred towards ensuring that the right medical procedures were in place to stop the spread of the disease in the country.
In celebrating the icons, the producers celebrated their potential to stand for what is right, serve selflessly and make a difference in their world.
According to the producers, 93 Days is definitely a must-watch with a perfect blend of both local and international casts to ensure excellent quality and international exposure was achieved.
Renowned American Theatre practitioner and Filmmaker, Pemon Rami also joined the team as producer.
“Our aim is to create a feature film that would resonate with many people across the world particularly in Nigeria and its sub-region.
“At its core, 93 Days is a tale of common humanity and just how much we can achieve when we stand united.”
The project was a co-production between Michel Angelo Production, Bolanle Austen-Peters Production (BAP) and Natives Film Works.
Bolanle Austen-Peters added, “We recognize that we have to tell our own stories, we also recognize that hardly ever are all the stars aligned to allow Nigeria and Nigerians shine on the international scene, our role is to celebrate our heroes and Nigeria on the global scene.”
93 Days was directed by Steve Gukas, and produced by Bolanle Austen-Peters, Dotun Olakunri and Steve Gukas.
