NOLLYWOOD TAKES OFF

With uncanny similarities to recent tragic events in Nigeria Last Flight to Abuja is the stunning and visionary new movie from Obi Emelonye, the acclaimed director of The Mirror Boy.

Inspired by true events, Last Flight to Abuja is a high octane disaster thriller and the first Nigerian movie to be set on aeroplane. The movie stars some of Africa's best screen actors
Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Hakeem Kae-Kazim and Jim Iyke and features SFX never before seen in any Nollywood movie.

Stylishly directed, Last Flight to Abuja unravels the twists, turns and leaps of fate that put a set of everyday Nigerian travelers on-board a stricken plane teetering on the brink of disaster at 30,000 feet. Caught up in a nightmare scenario all the passengers pray as the final moments of their lives approach.

All…except one! What does he know?
Will they survive....-..the
Last Flight to Abuja?


Originally inspired by a series of airplane disasters that rocked Nigeria in 2006, Last Flight to Abuja has inadvertently become highly relevant and timely due to the recent news of the horrific plane crashes that occurred in Lagos and Accra with the loss of over 170 lives. Taking into account the sensitivities of all concerned, the producers felt that now was the most opportune time to release this now important film in order to maintain pressure on the relevant agencies to tackle the serious issue of air safety in Africa.

The producers, cast and African media organisations are now coming together to create a campaign demanding improvements in air safety in Nigeria and Africa as a whole. As a tribute and mark of respect for the victims of the Dana Airlines and Allied Air disasters, the producers of the film have dedicated the film to their memory. May their souls rest in peace.

Together we can do our part to help make a difference and with your support we hope this film can be the start of a change that every Nollywood fan can be proud of! Tell your friends, family and loves ones about Last Flight to Abuja and make sure you all go see the film on opening night,
Friday 29th June.
