Omoni Oboli’s latest movie, Wing of Dove premiered at the cinemark Baldwin Hills and XD Theater, 4020 Marlton Ave Los Angeles California as part of the ongoing Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles California this February to the audience’s delight. The Award winning actress and mother of three is absolutely one of the women to reckon with in the Nollywood industry and is ready to take the message of her new movie to every corner of the world.
The new movie, ‘Wings of Dove’ addressed the issue of early marriage in our society by highlighting the negative effects on its victims and even the society in general, and also emphasizing the importance of educating the girl child.
The movie WINGS OF A DOVE is an emotionally charged story of two young Northern Nigerian girls who were married off to much older men at the age of 13 and 14 years but all they want is freedom to be children. The movie takes you on an emotional roller coaster of the loss of childhood innocence, the consequences of being in a forced, arranged marriage and the hopes and dreams of a future that is stolen from them.
The star studded movie showcases a menace in different parts of Africa and certain parts of Nigeria. Many have described bringing the movie to the discussion table through Omoni Oboli’s work of art as a welcome development. The movie screens again on the 10th and 11th of February at the festival.
Before now, Omoni Oboli has made other masterful works such as Being Mrs Elliot, First Lady, Wives on Strike, Mums at War and Okafor’s Law. The wife and mother has been making moves and gaining recognition in the industry.
This movie addresses what is happening in our society today and what can be done to fix them.
