‘Halima’ premieres at Jesus House
The first feature length movie to be created by members of Jesus House church in Brent Cross, London will be screened on Saturday, September 15th.
The 90 min film ‘Halima’, produced by Moving Images ministry is about friendship, fraud, faith, retribution and redemption, and will be premiered at the main auditorium of The Jesus House centre with an opportunity to ask the movie team questions about the movie itself and future features.
The main character, Ade Harvey played by Joseph Anin is about an unlikely genius whose talents propel him to the fast track of the wrong side of the law, even though his actions are motivated by his fixation on a girl he has just met.
The film unravels the twists and turns of Ade Harvey’s dilemma. Will Halima, his female love interest, be his reason to love and to change, or his final undoing?
The director, Bosun Sadare said, “The film was inspired out of the fact that young Africans in Diaspora are facing ongoing challenges.
“However, seemingly simple decisions can lead to big trouble and in this film; we see a new spin on the issue of credit card fraud.”
He adds “but the movie takes you on a journey of fun, hardships, choices and power plays, vanity and realities, until the real master plan for the redemption of a soul is unravelled.”
The main cast includes David Levi Beard, Usman Seidu and Afua Akom and includes appearances from many more actors and actresses. All the cast and crew of this movie were volunteers who gave their time, resources and effort to make the movie a success.
The film emerges as a faith-inspired film production which is a dynamic and interesting alternative to Nollywood and Hollywood films popular in the UK and across the world.
A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to Samaritans Purse to help raise money for a project tagged ‘Operation Christmas Child’ (OCC). This is a campaign led by the charity, Samaritan’s Purse, who Jesus House church are partnering with this Christmas to send out 8,000 gift-filled shoeboxes to less privileged children in Liberia.
The Jesus House premiere will include two screenings on the day, 4pm and 6pm with plans for wider showings across London in the coming months.
This promises to be an evening of quality entertainment with friends and family. Admission: £6 (saver ticket), £8 (regular ticket, drink and nibbles), £20 (group autographed ticket for 5 persons), £25 (group saver ticket for 5 persons)
