EAGLE WINGS Take To The Nigerian Skies This May From Vision Films
Vision Films’s latest endorsement of Nollywood cimema comes by way of writer/director Paul Apel Papel with the new military thriller, Eagle Wings. The film was shot entirely on location in Nigeria and is one of Vision’s emerging catalog from prolific filmmakers in the region.
As insurgents overtake territories and kill civilians, the Nigerian Air Force is called in to bring peace to the area. When a recently married commander is lost behind enemy lines, his brothers-in-arms swear to his wife they will bring him home safely. The rescue mission leads them into a war-torn area and directly into a terrorist stronghold where loyalties are put to the test.
Per the announcent, Eagle Wings “depicts the on-going devastating regional conflicts of insurgents, their pervasive mistrust of the government, and the mission of those who try to diffuse the war against all odds.”
The film stars Enyinna Nwigwe (The Wedding Party), Femi Jacobs (Omo Ghetto: The Saga), Yakubu Mohammed (Shuga), Francis Duru (Otondo), Keppy Ekpeyong Bassey, Uzee Usman, and Sadiq Daba, and will release on VOD beginning May 17, with further releases on cable, major streaming platforms, and DVD in the US and Canada.
