Trino Studios screens Sylvia at Nollywood Week Paris
African Movies Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) recipient Trino Studios is set to make a debut with its first feature film Sylvia, a tale of love, lust, betrayal and obsession. The producers of the short films Las Gidi Vice and The Encounter are offering an enthralling thriller drama, which will be screened for the first time at Nollywood Week Paris, organised by Okada Media.
With Babatunwa Aderinokun and Uche Okocha as Executive Producers, Ekene Mekwunye as producer, directed by Daniel Oriahi and written by Vanessa Kanu, Sylvia is buoyed by performances from Nollywood’s star acts like Zainab Balogun, Ini Dima Okojie, Udoka Oyeka and Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh.
A truly compelling story, the producers centre on the cause and effect of relationships, mental health and the real versus the surreal world. Chris Attoh stars as Richard the protagonist. Richard has always existed between the real world and fantasy world and is a home to his friend and lover Sylvia (Zainab Balogun). Filled with passion and love, the two devotees embark on a journey of commitment.
Time and life go on leaving Richard in a dicey situation. He is now faced with the decision on a future and full commitment, either to the real world with its demands or the surreal world that houses an increasingly frustrated Sylvia. Events unfold leading Richard on a downward spiral. The movie ends shockingly and unforgettably.
Through the movie, Trino Studios, together with the talented cast, demonstrates the reward passion, quality and precision conveys.
The yearly film festival, Nollywood Week Paris, which showcases the best of Nigerian film industry, will see the congregation of top filmmakers, journalists and personalities from Nigeria, France and the rest of the world. The four-day festival is scheduled to take place from Thursday, May 3 through Sunday, May 6 in Paris. Syvia screens at the festival as competition feature film in the ‘Prix du Public’ (Audience Award) category endowed to the filmmaker whose film scores the highest among the audience.
By showcasing Sylvia to the world, Trino Studios has promise with its film as top pick for screening in Paris. Sylvia will be released and distributed by Trino motion pictures across cinemas nationwide later this year.
