Half of the Yellow Sun (Watch "New" Exciting Trailer)

.
I talked about the upcoming movie "Half of The Yellow Sun" last year, well finally the trailer is finally here, check it out, below. I absolutely love the 1st trailer, Gosh i cant wait. There is nothing more exciting for me than waiting and anticipating on the release of a great movie.
.
.

.
The movie is an adaption of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie‘s best-selling novel. Chiwetel Ejiofor stars in the film alongside Thandie Newton, Genevieve Nnaji and Anika Noni Rose
.
A scene with Thandie Newton and Chiwetel Ejiofor
.
“Olanna (Newton) and Kainene (Rose) are glamorous twins from a wealthy Nigerian family. Returning to a privileged city life in newly independent 1960s Nigeria after their expensive English education, the two women make very different choices. Olanna shocks her family by going to live with her lover, the “revolutionary professor” Odenigbo (Ejiofor) and his devoted houseboy Ugwu (Boyega) in the dusty university town of Nsukka; Kainene turns out to be a fiercely successful businesswoman when she takes over the family interests, and surprises herself when she falls in love with Richard (Mawle) an English writer. Preoccupied by their romantic entanglements, and a betrayal between the sisters, the events of their life loom larger than politics.” 
.
The film will premiere in September at the Toronto Film Festival. Now these are the kind of movies we want to see come out of Africa, move great scripted films and story lines which are fit for international film festival to give us as Africans some diginity across the globe, AND NOT USELESS NONSENSICAL MEDIOCRE FOOLISH MOVIES LIKE YVONNE NELSONS / PASCAL AMANFO directed movie  "HOUSE OF GOLD". 
.
I am so excited to see this movie "Half of the Yellow Sun" with award winning actors (tresses) such as Thandie Newton, Anika Noni Rose, Genny and Chiwetal. Actors (tresses) you know you when you watch you wont get disappointed. 
.
I cant wait to watch it and review it. I have not reviewed  a movie in a long while, and my reason remains (and always will be) i refuse to waste my precious time to review nonsense movies that is not worth my time such as HOUSE OF GOLD (Yvonne Nelson just continue to stay pretty on red carpet but please save us all the headache of producing a movie or worse yet, acting in one, cos i will watch it on MUTE like i do Van Vicker :) - just to stare at the only thing worth staring - your pretty face :)  ). 
.

.
Thank You Chimamanda, We love the stories you tell and cant wait to support 100%. If you have never read any of ChiChi's books, ohhh you are so missing out. 



. She is one of the best african writers ever. And you should listen to her in an interview, so intelligent and bright woman. She is such an inspiration. 
.
Please support this movie when it comes out, and try to read the book too, i promise you will love it.

#Child-Not Bride Campaign + "DRY" (An Upcoming Stephanie Okereke Movie)

Northern Nigeria has one of the highest rates of child marriage in the world: nearly half of all girls here are married by the age of 15. The consequences have been devastating. Nigeria has the highest maternal mortality rate in Africa and one of the world’s highest rates of fistula, a condition that can occur when the pressure of childbirth tears a hole between the vagina and the bladder or rectum. Many women are left incontinent for life. Up to 800,000 women suffer from fistula in Nigeria. And as if that was not enough, you have all recently heard, that a bunch of SICK PEDOPHILES who happen to be senators in the Nigerian government have all signed for child marriage to be legal in Nigeria -
.
Basically what they did is approved language that would remove the protection for young women and girls from repeatedly being rape in the guise of early marriage, so in retrospect a 13 yr old can be married off. See below for the list of all the pedophiles who signed this. 
.
It just so happens that our beautiful gorgeous Actress Stephanie Okereke had already completed a movie titled "DRY" which covers this issue of Vesico Vaginal Fistula (V.V.F ), a cause the soft spoken actress is very passionate about. VVF is like female circumcision and you can read another thread i posted here last year - Grassroot movement to end female circumcision. There are so many youtube videos you can watch on this topic just to be aware of what is going thats hardly ever spoken of.
.
Our actress Stephanie says; “I have been to the North and to other parts of the country, and I have seen first-hand how this health issue defies normal living for girls and women of different ages. I have decided to share their stories through “DRY”. 
.
The movie “DRY” journeys into the heart-wrenching details of a culture not too many films dare to explore. The issue might seem controversial, but if it will set one girl free and open the minds of the people, and also instruct different bodies and individuals to take action, then the movie would have served its purpose. Vesico Vaginal Fistula (V.V.F ) causes leakage of urine and faeces through the vagina. Girls as young as 11-15 years suffer this ailment when they are forced into early marriages to older men, and due to their small pelvic sizes, unable to carry a baby full term, they experience obstructive labour which can lead to a tear in the wall that which connects the vagina to the rectum thus causing the victim to constantly leak urine and sometimes feaces.
.
Stephanie was not going to release this movie yet at all, but with the recent announcement from the senate, and this topic being so related, she felt compelled to release this movie sooner. These atrocities still happening in parts of Africa and are all interrelated . 
.
The release of this movie will help increase the awareness globally about Vesico Vaginal Fistula (V.V.F ) as well as about underage marriages in many parts of africa - We are killing our own kids. We as adults need to protect our kids any way we can. It doesnt matter what tribe, religion, nationality. I am extremely utterly passionate about kids and hearing such stories, causes me sleepless nights. 
.
And on the topic of child marriage law passed in nigeria senate, these mofos as leaders of the nation are suppose to protect our children, not to stick your shrivel up d1cks in these lil girls. A child is suppose to be a child, to play, to learn, to just enjoy life without any worries. We as adults should do the worrying for them. This is the sickest law i have ever heard in my whole entire life.
.
.
.
Thank You so much Stephanie for making a movie such as this. We need great classic tell all movies like this , to increase awareness around the globe, and i wish you major success with this movie. I hope it makes it to the international film festivals. We got your back and will do all we possibly can to help promo this movie for you. You are doing this for our kids, and we as women appreciate you immensely more than you know. You are loved.  I dont know where the premiere will be but oh how i wish i can attend in Nigeria, if i was back home in Ghana. I hope you promo and premiere it in UK and USA too. We will support you. Thank You Mrs Stephanie Linus Idahosa (nee Okereke) and to you and your husband Linus Idahosa.
