Following the success of the world premiere which was attended by leading cast from Hollywood and Nollywood at London IndigO2 of Turning Point, a Hollywood/Nollywood production directed by London-based director of TWisTED, Niyi Towolawi, HekCentrik Films has appointed S TWO PR for press and publicity in the run up to the American and African premieres of the acclaimed production across three continents.
“Having invested a great deal in creative endeavours and produced a film of the calibre of Turning Point, I find a strong synergy with S Two PR as the ideal partner to work on publicity and press campaigns for Turning Point and HekCentrik Films,” said Niyi Towolawi, director of Turning Point and founder of HekCentrik Films, “Their understanding of our needs, the global film industry and the unique strengths of the husband and wife team bring a wealth of experience and confidence as we look forward to new opportunities in the new year.”
“We are delighted to represent and be part of such an exciting Nollywood/Hollywood project which truly inspires us in our creative communications and cannot wait to get to work on press and publicity,” said Sinem Onabanjo of S TWO PR.
In a compelling story of ethnic prejudice, blurred moral lines, revenge and redemption, Turning Point follows the rise and fall of Ade (Igoni Archibong), Nigerian-American New York City investment banker who is in a relationship with keen-to-marry African-American Stacey (KD Aubert) but is forced into an arranged marriage to seemingly submissive Grace (Jackie Appiah) by his controlling mother (Patience Ozokwor).
With a star studded cast of Hollywood and Nollywood talents bringing together Hollywood heavyweights Ernie Hudson best known for his roles as Winston Zeddemore in the Ghostbusters film series, Sergeant Albrecht in The Crow, The Hand that Rocks the Cradle and Warden Leo Glynn in Oz, Todd Bridges of Diff’rent Strokes fame, Victoria’s Secret model and actress from Scorpion King, Friday After Next and Soul Plane, KD Aubert, Joe Estevez with leading names of African cinema such as Nollywood’s noted actress Patience Ozokwor (Mama Gee) also known as Mother Africa, Ghana’s celebrated actress Jackie Appiah, Nigerian actress of Blackberry Babes fame Oge Okoye, Turning Point turns into reality what was once a dream of a partnership between the world’s two largest film industries, Hollywood and Nollywood.
Following the star-studded London premiere which filled the 1,500 capacity venue IndigO2 with the movers and shakers, Africa and America premiere dates will shortly be released.
