Lagos - Steve Gukas, the director of Ebola themed film, ’93 Days’ has revealed on Facebook that the movie will premiere in the United States in October.
“Chicago on my mind! God is awesome. Looking up, counting blessings. Really excited to share that 93Days has been selected for the 52nd Chicago International Film Festival. To hold USA Premiere at the festival. More to come soon.” He wrote on Facebook.
‘93 Days’ dramatizes the story of Nigeria's response to the very real Ebola epidemic in 2014 that killed more than 11,000 people in West Africa.
Hundreds had already died from the disease in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone when Ebola surfaced in Nigeria as a Liberian finance ministry official, Patrick Sawyer, arrived in Lagos on July 20, 2014, visibly unwell.
The 52nd Chicago film festival holds from October 13 to 27
