Set and shot in London, UK, the film also stars Nollywood veteran Rykardo Agboh, alongside UK actors of both Nigerian and British backgrounds, such as popular British TV actress, Nicola Alexis (currently starring in Harry Porter musical), Max Cavenham, Moji Bamtefa and talented eight-year-old Angel Agala.
The story follows a casual extramarital affair that soon becomes a living nightmare for Dr. Daniels who quickly discovers that his free-spirited conquest (Rita Dominic) wants more and would go to great lengths to achieve it. He must now find a way to make her disappear before her obsessive nature destroys his family.
Desecration was produced by Bode Odetoye of Kherut Films. Helming the motion picture as the director is international multi-award winner, Niyi Towolawi of HekCentrik Films. Incidentally, for the director who is London based, Desecration is his first feature film set in London, his previous three films being shot in the US and Nigeria.
Says Bode Odetoye about the project: “we put a lot of effort into this project and it’s finally great to see this movie coming out. I want the audience to appreciate the efforts of the cast and crew, especially Rita Dominic and my erudite director, Niyi Towolawi. He has been a top filmmaker for over 12 years and displays his complete mastery of his craft on Desecration.”
Niyi Towolawi adds, “I believe the Nigerian audience will love this film. I hope they find it as rewarding as it was to work on it, with such talent, and a producer that allowed me so much space to put my signature as an auteur on the film”.
Desecration is distributed by Genesis cinemas. Following the Nigerian release, Desecration will be released in other African countries and beyond in 2017.
