The latest movie by Tope Oshin Ogun, Here Love Lies, is set for release as from March 3, on various platforms.
The movie follows the story of Amanda, a single parent and travel blogger who embarks on a social media romance with American tour guide Michael, leading to a trip to the US that opens up unexpected doors.
Tope Oshin, the director, producer, writer, and lead actress of the movie, is a multiple award-winning filmmaker with credits including New Money, We Don’t Live Here Anymore, and Up North. The movie stars Tope Oshin, Tim Shelburne, Sam Dede, Angel Unigwe, Tina Mba, Omowunmi Dada, Omozele Gabriel, Barbara Walsh, Bambi Everson, and Daniel Etim Effiong, with Daniel Ademinokan serving as the co-producer, cinematographer, editor, color grader, and music supervisor.
A compelling tale of love and danger, the movie received the prestigious AMAA award for Best Film by an African-born director living abroad in September 2022, and had its world premiere screening at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art in Washington DC, as part of its debut presentation of the +234 Connect Film Festival.
It has also received the ReFrame Stamp, an initiative by the Sundance Institute, Women In Film, and IMDBpro, marking its success in UKgender-balance and the promotion of female-identifying people in film and TV productions.
Oshin described the movie as a mind-boggling tale, visually and plot wise.
“It is a mind-boggling tale that starts rocky, develops into a steady-romantic-family-oriented story, and then quickly becomes a dark edgy dangerous thriller. After all, they say, life itself is not always what it seems.”
