BB Sasore has released the trailer of his highly anticipated movie, ‘God Calling’, one month away from the movie’s release date. The three minutes long trailer takes audiences through the turbulence in the lives of three families joined together by marriage.
‘God Calling’ is a story of redemption that looks at the life of Sade, her family, and her faith through the lens of an unconventional encounter with God in this modern age. After Sade, the protagonist, suffers a personal tragedy, she goes on a journey of self-discovery and faith as she battles with the conflicting pressures of family, culture, and social expectations. The movie shines a spotlight on modern-day spirituality by imaginatively exploring what it might look like for Abraham or Prophet Elijah to be Nigerian in 2018, and have to contend with disbelief as well as current realities such as smartphones, and social media.
Sade’s journey sees her go through modern-day experiences of some of the tent poles of the Christian faith, as all around her discover their own faith through her journey. This movie will leave audiences asking – ‘what is God calling me to do?’
‘God Calling’ is written and directed by BB Sasore, whose studio, Nemsia studios, was also responsible for creating ‘Before 30’ and ‘Banana Island Ghost.’ God Calling is set for release in cinemas this December 21st. The film features a stellar cast made up of Zainab Balogun, Karibi Fubara, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Onyeka Onwenu, Nkem Owoh, Tina Mba, Patrick Diabuah, Chidinma Okebalama (Chee), Eku Edewor, and a host of others.
Speaking on his inspiration for the movie, Sasore stated: “As a filmmaker, I considered how the world is looking to our continent for original stories, and how the Bible is filled with the most original stories that we each experience in our own way every day. It led me to think of how religion would adapt to time and geography, and this is what birthed ‘God Calling’.”
