Iyore is finally set for the big screens after its release was delayed last year.
Raj Films and Heroes Production, producers of the new movie announced on Wednesday April 15, that it would release the movie with premiere events on May 8 at the Silverbird Cinemas, in both Ghana and Nigeria.
That will subsequently be followed by other screening events in other African countries.
Iyore is described as a must see of movie. It is directed by Frank Rajah and stars great African actors; Rita Dominic, Joseph Benjamin, Yemi Blaq, Paul Obazele, Bukky Wright, Okawa Shaznay and a host of others.
It is Frank Rajah’s highest budget movie he directed in 2014 and it is based on the history and culture of the people of Benin, Nigeria, where he comes from.
It is a mythical tale set around the ancient Benin Kingdom and tells a story about life after life. The epic feature is a mixture of historical facts and fiction. It explores a tragic love story centred on the rich culture of pre-colonial Benin through to the present day of Benin whilst exploring the supernatural ideas of reincarnation.
It is co-produced by Kwame Boadu of Heroes Production and Frank Rajah’s Raj Films. It is one of the movies to watch out for this year.
