Mo Abudu tears up during Screening of “Òlòtūré” at Carthage Film Festival in Tunisia



EbonyLife blockbuster film “Oloture” was selected to screen at the world famous JCC Carthage Film Festival 2019 in Tunisia.

The festival was attended by executive producer, MO Abudu alongside some casts of Oloture, Omoni Oboli, Sharon Ooja and Omowunmi Dada.

The Oloture actors and producer arrived Tunisia earlier this week and the movie was screened yesterday.

Shortly after the screening of Oloture, MO Abudu tearfully gave a speech of how the movie emotionally affects her, as she announced that the entire profit gotten from Oloture will be used to help vulnerable ladies who have been victims of human trafficking.

Set in Nigeria, Òlòtūré is the story of a young, naïve Nigerian journalist who goes undercover to expose the shady underworld of human trafficking.

Good morning beautiful people and a happy new month. Every single time I watch Oloture it makes me cry. I hold back and fight back the tears, but I still find I cannot hold them back. Òlòtūré is a beautiful film, but it’s a hard-hitting film that deals with the harsh reality of human trafficking and prostitution. I have pledged to put our box office revenue back into fighting this horrid crime. I would like to thank the Carthage Film Festival for sharing our story with the world at the historical LE 4 EME ART last night. On stage here at the end of our screening with our director @KennethGyang and some of our lead cast @OmoniOboli, @SharonOoja and @Omowunmi_Dada. We release our full official trailer at 4pm today. Please lookout for it. We will commence our cinema run at some time end of 1st quarter next year. #OlotureTheMovie #ComingSoon #CarthageFilmFestival #Tunisia __ #SlideLeft to see the full video
