Doctor turned Actor; Kiki Omeili, best known for her roles in Lekki Wives and the crime caper Gbomo Gbomo Express has raised the bar in NOLLYWOOD Storytelling and has changed the game with her debut feature film production: “RUN”.
Shot almost entirely at night on the streets of Lagos, RUN tells the story of an uptight young woman who lives a regimented and structured life until she witnesses something one night that throws her life into chaos and had her running from pillar to post and doing things that she has never done before – trying to get back to her normal life.
RUN is written and produced by Kiki Omeili and directed by the prolific Uche Chukwu. It stars brilliant acts which include Kiki Omeili, Owen Gee, Kelechi Udegbe, Rotimi Salami, Rotimi Fakunle and more.
The movie employs the use of brilliant camera work, excellent cinematography and catchy scores to tell a very compelling story that has a little bit of everything: Action, Drama, Comedy and it thrills you to the very end.
When asked why she embarked on the project, Omeili stated that she was compelled to produce the kind of movie she would want to be in. “I had seen too much of a certain kind of movie in Nollywood and I wanted to go in a different direction” she added.
Undoubtedly she made the difference as ‘RUN’ has been selected to screen at several international film festivals including the
Silicon Valley International Film Festival in California and the Slum International Film Festival in Kenya.
More so, it has already won an award at the Toronto International Nollywood Film Festival in Canada. Furthermore, RUN has several nominations at the Golden Movie Awards Africa to be held in Ghana.
To see what’s different about ‘RUN’ and why it has received so many accolades, it’s showing in cinemas Nationwide.
