The Amazing Grace

Almost saw this film yesterday. Directed by young filmmaker Jeta Amata (also a member of the famous Amata family), this film was shot for cinema release (unlike the rest of Nollywood fare, which are mostly straight-to-video). Hopefully, The Amazing Grace and other films like it will herald in a new era of professionalism in the Nigerian movie industry. There are definitely a new crop of young, talented filmmakers out there eager to unleash their creativity onto the local movie scene - and we all know it needs it (BADLY!!).
