'Gidi Blues' set to feature in Ghana, Uganda Film Festivals

11 August 2016, 15:57

Lagos - Film maker , Femi Odugbemi will move to Accra, Ghana, where his latest work,  Gidi Blues has been selected as closing film for the Black Star International Film Festival Ghana.

The platform will give Odugbemi the opportunity to speak with Ghanaian film community, as well as share his wealth of experience with festival attendees.   

Meanwhile, Odugbemi has been returned as the Chief Jury for this year’s Ugandan Film Festival, making it an unprecedented third time in a row.

Aside from his role as Chief Jury for the festival, which opens on August 22, 2016, in Kampala, Uganda, Odugbemi’s Gidi Blues was also picked as the opening film for the festival organised by the Uganda Communications Commission.

Shot in iconic places in Lagos such as Idumota and Makoko, with special focus on the popular Makoko floating school, Gidi Blues centers on Akin (Gideon Okeke), an indulged playboy from an affluent family, who accidentally meets an interesting beauty in an unpredictable place. 

Nkem is a beautiful, confident but unusual young lady who devotes herself to her work as community volunteer in the belly of the city’s worst slum. Their encounter drags Akin into a whirlwind experience that unravels his world.

 Produced and directed by Odugbemi, the movie stars Gideon Okeke, Hauwa Allahbura, Lepacious Bose, Daniel Lloyd, Nancy Isime, Bukky Wright, Tina Mba, Segun Obadare-Akpata, Toyin Oshinaike, William Ekpo, with cameo appearances by Banky W, Aduke and Jahman Anikulapo.
