After a successful Lagos premiere, A-list actress, director and producer, Stephanie Linus, hosted a spectacular premiere in the nation’s capital. Aside from the fact that everyone who attended attested to the excellent quality and message behind the movie, the turn up of dignitaries and guests was very impressive. Dignitaries included World Bank’s Vice President and Treasurer, Arunma Oteh, Senator Ben Murray Bruce; the Kenyan Ambassador to Nigeria, Thomas Amolo, USAID’s acting Mission Director, Matt Burton; Program Officer, Advancing Public Service Media (West Africa), Ford Foundation, Paul Nwulu; Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Health, Dr Linus Awute, represented by the Director/Head of Department of Family Health, Mr. Wapada Balami, and Country Project Manager, Engender Health/USAID Fistula Care Plus Project in Nigeria, Dr Habib Sadauki. Also present were Charly Boy, Charles Novia and some cast members of DRY including Zubaida Ibrahim Fagge, Hauwa Maina, Paul Sambo, Anna Tanko, as well as representatives from the World Bank and AIR Peace. The event took place on Thursday, August 13 at the Silverbird Cinema. DRY was written, produced and directed by the A-List actress, who also starred in the movie. Her husband, Linus Idahosa, who was also the Executive Producer of the movie, was present to give his support. DRY is based on a true story that follows a trail of Zara’s (played by Stephanie Linus) trip to Africa, her constant turmoil as a result of inexplicable horrors from her childhood, experiences and heartaches while working with child brides, against the backdrop of a rich African culture. It is full of intrigues, suspense, surprises, the joy of reconciliation that is guaranteed to captivate and engage moviegoers. The film stars: Darwin Shaw as Dr. Alex, the legendary Liz Benson Ameye as the Matron, Bill McNamara as Dr. Brown, and Introducing Zubaida Ibrahim Fagge as Halima, the teenager who had to endure a life not designed for a child: to be married to a man who was about four times her age. Produced by Next Page Productions, the film was supported by the Office of the Special Adviser to the President on MDGs, Aberystwyth University Wales, Diamond Bank, Ford Foundation, Project Act Nollywood, USAID Acquired Fistula Project, Vlisco and more. DRY is now showing in cinemas nationwide.
