From the Stables of Sunbow productions, in collaboration with Africa Magic, comes this romantic thriller, Evol.
Evol is the story of 2 strangers who explore the impossible complexities of a possible relationship, after having sex the very first day that they meet. Written and directed by Tope Oshin, the movie stars Lami Philips, Toyin Abraham and Kenneth Okolie.
Tope Oshin currently has double nominations at The Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) and is known for her exceptional work as director for TV dramas and soap operas such as Hush, Hotel Majestic, and Tinsel (TV series). Though she has directed several short films such as The Young Smoker, Till Death Do Us Part, New Horizons and recently Ireti, her 2012 feature film ‘ Journey to Self’ won her a lot of praise.
In 2015, Tope produced the romantic film Fifty, about four fifty-year-old female Lagos residents. The film broke box office records upon release in the December, taking N20 million in the first weekend. In 2016, she directed the documentary, Amaka’s Kin: The Women of Nollywood, as a memorial to prominent filmmaker Amaka Igwe, who died in 2014. The documentary addresses issues facing female directors working in Nollywood in a male-dominated industry. This documentary alongside “Ireti” is nominated for the 2017 AMVCAs.
Based on the aforementioned works of Tope, we do not expect to see anything less from Evol. Evol is scheduled to premiere on Tuesday the 28th of February, 2017 at 5:00pm Nigerian time on AfricaMagic Urban, DSTV Channel 153
