Tickets For Premiere Of ‘Eyimofe’ At Berlin Film Festival Sold Out

It is virtually impossible to get tickets for next Monday’s world premiere of Eyimofe (This is my Desire) at the 70th Berlin International Film Festival as they were all sold out within hours of going on sale on Friday. ⁣⁣

Eyimofe, presented by GDN Studios, directed by the Esiri brothers, Arie and Chuko, and produced by Melissa Adeyemo, will get its first screening at the Berlinale at 9:30 pm local time on Monday at the 800-seater CinemaxX 3, Potsdamer Straße 5, Potsdamer Platz.⁣⁣

The film, which has Maiden Alex Ibru, Toke Alex Ibru, Olorogun Oskar Ibru, Kayode Akindele and Ifeoma Esiri as executive producers, was a 2018 Purple List Award winner and one of 10 projects chosen for last year’s IFP Narrative Lab in New York.

Wholly financed by Nigerian investors and shot on 16mm across Lagos State, Eyimofe is a diptych that tells the story of two people’s quest for what they believe will be a better life in Europe.

Described as the alternate migrant tale Eyimofe approaches a much-discussed topic from a new perspective: one in which you get to know who the people caught in raids and rescued from the sea are, and their dreams and desires.

It stars Jude Akuwudike, Tomiwa Edun, Temi Ami-Williams, Cynthia Ebijie, Chioma Omeruah and Jacob Alexander. Arseni Khachaturan is the director of photography while Taisa Malouf handled production design with Daniel Obasi handling costume; Andrew Stephen Lee (editor) and Akin Adebowale was in charge of music.
