In the midst of a lot of mediocre movies produced by nollywood directors, every so often some stick out. One of those movies is this one we’re featuring right here, Black Gold. Directed by Jeta Amata. I personally am very impressed with the plot, and quality. I will definitely go watch it when it premiers in 2011. The synopsis is shown below (excerpt from youtube page) and the trailer immediately after. Enjoy.
From award winning director, Jeta Amata, comes Black Gold, a powerful story of greed, murder and corruption in the murky waters of the volatile oil rich Niger Delta region of Nigeria. Black Gold is an epic film about environmental justice and the fight over the control of the scarce oil resources that the world runs on. The line between good and evil is blurred as corrupt government officials, greedy oil companies and violent rebels go on a war path over oil spills and degradation of the land caused by oil exploration. Starring Billy Zane, Mbong Amata, Hakeem Kae Kazim and Sarah Wayne Callies. Produced by Jeta Amata, Wilson Ebiye, Dede Mabiaku and Hakeem Kae Kazim. Original score and trailer by Joel Goffin.
