WORLD PREMIERE: HALF OF A YELLOW SUN PREMIERES IN CANADA


 

Half of a yellow Sun the movie, an adaption of Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie‘s Orange Prize-winning novel, chronicles the captivating journey of two women during the tumult of Nigeria’s independence and ensuing Nigerian-Biafran War (1967-1970)

With a heavily packed cast and crew, the Nigerian Movie scene has indeed crossed borders.

While its historical scope looks fifty years into the past, Half of a Yellow Sun is a chilling, lucid, and emotionally gripping drama from contemporary Nigerian cinema, and a film that honours the fearless intelligence and strength of the country’s women.

Half of a Yellow Sun, the highly-anticipated film, will have its world premiere at the 38th annual Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) today, Sunday 8th September 2013, at the Winter Garden Theatre, Toronto, Canada.
