Campfire Films in partnership with Natures Gentle Touch is set to release ‘Omoye’, a movie that addresses the social vice of domestic violence.
Chijioke Anaele, general manager of Natures Gentle Touch, in a press conference, said: “Omoye speaks to one of the most disregarded and pressing issues in Nigeria, for which all hands, must be on deck to get rid of, for a saner, healthier society.
“Our partnership with Campfire Films is one of the ways Natures Gentle Touch seeks to promote the confidence and self-esteem of Nigerian women, who majorly are our target market and unfortunately, often at the receiving end of domestic violence.
“We are convinced that everybody will benefit from a sane and stable society. ‘Omoye’ is one movie that will contribute in arousing public consciousness about the vice, thereby helping to shape orientation for a better Nigerian society devoid of violence.”
Speaking on the theme of ‘Omoye’, Uche Chukwu, director and producer of the movie, said: “Though in recent times we have seen victims come out to speak about their experiences, but what about the woman in Ajegunle, Makoko, Egbeda, etc.
“Who considers it a prerogative of the rich to speak out against domestic violence?’ Omoye, will give voice to these voiceless majority, which is why we deliberately chose the location and the kind of story to tell.”
Anita Anosike, brand manager of Natures Gentle Touch, further explained the importance of curbing domestic violence.
“Although like every other evil, domestic violence might be tough to eradicate, we must continually raise awareness on its negative effects, not just us as individuals but also on the society at large.
“This is the core of this movie and that is why we are passionately supporting it as well as organizing a walk to raise consciousness against domestic violence.”
Omoye is set to hit cinemas on October 27 and will also be screened in designated underprivileged communities across the country.
