Genevieve Nnaji has made a remarkable feat in the industry, with the acquisition of her movie Lion Heart by Netflix. In an interview with CNN’s Richard Quest she revealed that she was quite impressed with the level of acceptance of the movie by an international audience, at its premiere. Genevieve is positive that Nollywood is on its way to the mainstream industry.
Genevieve also stated that funding continues to be a problem for Nigerian filmmakers who desire to produce movies for a global standard. She nevertheless believes that like every other movie industry in the world, Nigerian movies are telling stories that resonate with the entire human race.
Lion Heart which marked Genevieve Nnaji’s debut in movie directing, features some of the most classic faces in the movie industry like Nkem Owoh, Pete Edochie, Onyeka Onwenu, Kanayo O Kanayo.
Genevieve’s Lion Heart was premiered this September at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival.
