Nollywood veterans Sola Sobowale, Ireti Doyle and Sam Dede will star along with other actors like Becky Odungide – Asindi, KedianaAbasi Kam, Emma Etukudo, Lois Ikpaha, Emmanuel Owuala and many others in the upcoming movie ‘1929′.
The movie 1929, tells the true life story about the Ikot Abasi women, Opobo Division unrest of 1929 which ended up claiming the lives of many women protesters across the eastern part of Nigeria.
According to a statement by the film’s Producer, Ndy Akan, “1929 film was done in order to let the world know the part the Ibibio and Annang women played to stop women’s taxation by the colonial masters, particularly the women from Ikot Abasi, Opobo division. The general impression people have is that the 1929 women’s riot took place only at Aba; no, women from different provinces in the then eastern region of Nigeria played a major part to stop the imposition of tax on women.”
“The film will serve as a point of reference for research, especially for young people. On a lighter note, the film is spiced up with a love story to delight the viewers, it is a historical film that will make you think, feel, laugh and learn and I will be happy to see people come out to watch history being made,” Akan also added.
