For the Nigerian movie industry, the year has not been short of surprise box office hits despite the odds.
“76” will have its World Premiere Screening on Sunday September 11th. at the prestigious Isabel Bader Theatre in Toronto with Key Cast in attendance.
Nollywood fans eagerly await the premiere of a game-changing film rooted in the events of the botched 1976 coup. One of the most arduous tasks in the production of the movie, according to its Executive Director, Prince Tonye Princewill, was the effort to secure a working relationship with the Nigerian Army.

“76 tells a tale of love in the time of war. The movie deals with a range of issues including the plight of the African woman, and the usually invisible pain of a soldier’s wife.
