1418 beyond blood, Greg Odutayo, Deborah Odutayo

Beyond Blood, a romantic thriller starring Kehinde Bankole, Bimbo Manuel, Caroline King, Joseph Benjamin, Francis Onwochei among other notable actors will be premiered at Silverbird Cinema, Victoria Island, Lagos on January 14, 2016.

Hollywood Weekly Magazine Film Festival’s Nollywood Director of the Year 2015 award winner, Greg Odutayo is the director of the film, while his spouse, Deborah Odutayo is the producer.

Beyond Blood that took five years to complete is a high budget movie shot in 4k.

The story revolves around Moji, a young Oxford educated woman with a passion for social justice and equality. Her privileged background contrasts sharply with the desperate conditions of the prostitutes, drug-addicts and their children she cares for at ‘The Mansion’ – a centre she funds privately much to the disapproved of some in her social circle including her family.

Beyond Blood shot in English, Pidgin, French and Yoruba language and subtitles with locations in Lagos Nigeria, London UK is a story that chronicles the ills in our society and the world – Prostitution, Drug addiction, AIDS, Homosexuality, Eastern European Trafficking gangs and a culture that legitimises tyranny and injustice especially of women trapped in the vagrancies of culture and tradition.

Written by Debo Oluwatumininu, Beyond Blood had premiered on November 1, 2015 at the Simon Wiesenthal Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, California, USA.

Commenting on the movie, Greg Odutayo said a lot of research and hard work were put into the movie, and it has the best cast of any movie.

“We wanted to make a movie that will give us worldwide recognition and started working on this film five years ago. We took a lot of time in casting and everybody gave the movie his or her best shot.

“Kehinde Bankole had to learn French, so also Joseph Benjamin. It is suspense-filled and not a mundane film. It touches issues confronting the human race.”

All Silverbird Cinemas except that of Festac will show Beyond Blood as from January 15, so also Okada Cinema, Viva Cinemas in Ilorin and Ibadan, Genesis Cinema, Abuja, Ozone Cinema, Yaba, among others.
