Holding Hope and Bursting Out fro premier in August

…we want to make people cry and laugh-Uche Jombo

First, from Royal Arts Academy Productions were Guilty Pleasure and Nollywood Hustlers starring notable stars such as Ramsey Nouah, Majid Micheal, Nse Ikpe Etim, Uche Jombo, Susan Peters, Charles Inojie, Monalisa Chinda and many others.

Now, it is Holding Hope and Bursting Out from the movie cooking pots of Emem Isong, Desmond Elliot and Uche Jombo. The trio who seem to have mastered the art of giving double treats as premiere are toeing same path they did last year when they showed two movies, Guilty Pleasure and Nollywood Hustlers to selected crowd amidst pomp and pageantry.

Holding Hope and Bursting Out will be premiered on Sunday, August 8 at Silverbird Galleria, Lagos before doing rounds at ‘community cinema houses’ across the country.

Holding Hope is the story of Mrs. Badmus and her wayward son. It is the story which springs complexity out of simple plot. For Sidney to inherit his mother’s wealth who is dying of cancer there is a hurdle he must cross and that hurdle isn’t an easy one. The story was written by Uche Jombo, Emem Isong, and Uduak Emem Oguwamalam. With impressive cast such as Uche Jombo, Desmond Elliot, Nadia Buhari, Biola Williams, Ngozi Nwosu, Rukky Sanda and many others one can only imagine what to expect.

Speaking on the movie, Uche said they want to make people cry, laugh and perhaps pause and think at the same time. ‘It’s a movie that we intend and want people to see in the cinema, and be moved by it, cry about it, and at the same time, laugh. Really, life is too short, as there are things you can change in life, but there are also things you cannot change”.

Come Sunday August 8, Emem, Desmond and Uche will try to out-do their first outing and prove to all and sundry that the success of their first outing was not a fluke.
