GDN Studios has announced dates for the premiere and cinema release of its debut film Eyimofe (This Is My Desire), following an extensive tour of the global film festival circuit.

The movie will have its Nigerian premiere on Sunday, April 18, just days before opening in cinemas on Friday, April 23.

Eyimofe has received numerous praises from international audiences, festival directors, critics and industry media.

This is the first feature film directed by Arie and Chuko Esiri, brothers and co-directors.

The movie is centred around the pressures of everyday life in Nigeria, the desperate measures people take to survive, especially the unrelenting desire to escape to a better life abroad, by whatever means.

It follows the parallel lives of Mofe, an electrician and part-time security guard, and Rosa, a struggling hairdresser, both trying to navigate illegal ways of fleeing the country.

Eyimofe has been selected for different festivals across the globe, including the prestigious Berlin International Film Festival 2020, where it had its World Premiere; the British Film Institute’s London Film Festival; and the American Film Institute (AFI) Film Festival.

It has also received several festival awards including ‘Winner, Best Fiction, New Filmmakers’ at the São Paulo International Film Festival (Brazil), and ‘Winner, Achille Valdata Award’ at the Torino Film Festival (Italy).
