Last year, we heard news of a Frank Rajah Arase movie titled, Iyore, featuring Rita Dominic, Joseph Benjamin, Okawa Shaznay, Paul Obazele, Yemi Blaq and Bukky Wright. The Good news is that we can now confirm that the movie is set to premiere in Nigerian cinemas on the 8th of May 2015.
Iyore means “The Return: A Life After Life”, and it is based on the history and the culture of the people of Benin, Nigeria.
The movie is a mixture of historical facts and fiction. It explores a tragic love story centered on the rich culture of pre-colonial Benin through to the present day of Benin whilst exploring the supernatural ideas of reincarnation.
Director, Frank Rajah has described the movie as the best he has produced and directed so far. With ten nominations at the 2014 Golden Icons Academy Movie Awards, (prior to its release), fans can expect the very best Nollywood has to offer with this movie.
