Filmmaker, Obi Emelonye, has announced the world premiere of his inspirational Christian film ‘The Oratory’.
Confirming the world premiere set to hold at the Odeon Cinema in Point Square, Dublin, Ireland on September 10, 2021, Emelonye on his Instagram said “It’ll be a great night of glamour and an opportunity to aid the work of Salesians of Don Bosco is tacking child poverty, homelessness and school-dropout in Nigeria.”
The story is based on Reverend Father Michael Simmons, (Rich Lowe Ikenna), an American Catholic priest sent from Turin, Italy to a posh parish in Ikoyi, Lagos.
On arrival, the young, priest becomes more interested in the plights of street children from the nearby slum called Makoko. However, to reach the desperate boys, he has to step on big toes in his host parish.
He must also confront Shuga (Nwigwe), the dangerous Makoko kingpin who has the street boys locked in criminal servitude.
The film will screen in over 16 countries including London, Turin, Rome, Lagos, Abuja, Congo and Paris before the year runs out.
