Memories were refreshed last Tuesday as tears rolled down several cheeks when the movie was screened before a large audience at House on the Rock Cathedral, Lekki. Two years after the deadly Ebola virus was successfully combated in Nigeria, notable Nollywood producers have come together to tell the story of the deadly virus in a movie titled 93 Days.
With a well written script, beautiful directorial abilities and specially selected cast members, 93 Daysserves as a complete documentary of how the Ebola virus came into Nigeria and how it was contained by the selflessness of the nurses and health workers at First Consultants Hospital in Obalende, and the Lagos State Ministry of Health.
Speaking at the premiere, one of the producers, Bolanle Austen-Peters stated that the original names of the Ebola victims were used and some of the scenes were shot at the original locations.
“There are so many important stories in Nigeria that could be told but because of lack of funding, we can’t tell these stories; Ebola is one of them. Some of the casts of the movie are also the people who were involved in the time of Ebola so they were acting themselves in the movie,” she stated.
