After a very successful premiere in Yenagoa, the capital of Bayelsa State, all is now set for the nationwide/international release of Pit of Shame from the stable Timipre Femone Entertainment.
Shot on locations in Bayelsa and Enugu States respectively, the heart rending thriller directed by Bolou Resident, is expected to hit shelves with O’King Production as the major distributor, in the next couple of weeks.
Speaking on the project, which she admitted is very dear to her heart, Miss Femone, the producer of the socially relevant flick insisted that the dearth of values in families and the society at large, spurred her into investing enough time and funds in the movie.
“The truth is, acting and filmmaking had always been my dreams, although, I studied Biology at the University of Port-Harcourt, from where I joined the movie industry. I decided to embark on this movie project because our young people need enlightenment and a positive social orientation. Our parents, elders and chiefs of our communities need to enforce rules to guide our children, especially the females and imbibe in them those values that will help shape and discipline them as good and law abiding citizens. Everyone has a role to play and as for me, I’ll keep praying and enlightening our society, especially the youths through my movies.”
Pit of Shame thematically revolves around the pathetic and painful story of a young lady who by stroke of fate and peer pressure got entangled with a notorious guy.
Her chequered life took a new twist and turn after she was ganged raped by the man she loved alongside his friends.
“It is a movie that will definitely move you to unending tears as the suspense filled plots begin to unfold,” hinted an insider.
Thespians that sparkled and sizzled in the action-packed flick include: Chimwetalu Agu, Uche Ogbodo, Abraham Nwodo, Elegant Azu, Ferdinand Ohams, Timipre Femone, KC Kennedy and several others.
Shedding more light on the challenges faced while lensing Pit of Shame, Femone had this to say:
“Nothing good comes easy without challenges and disappointments, but no matter what, one has to stand still. I had several bad experiences though, where people who want you to work for them, would want to toast your feminity not your ability. I advise our young men and women to use their talents to work out their dreams.”
