The event started with dapperly looking guests and celebrities bringing on poise and style on the red carpet while paparazzi and the press had a field day mingling with the stars and taking pictures.
The premiere proper began in a packed full hall with the introductions of the producer, director and some of the cast of the movie. The audience obviously captivated by the storyline of the movie was quiet for most of the movie except for some various interventions of claps and uproar of laughter. Once the movie ended guests were on their feet clapping and commending the producer for a job well done.
While we thought that was the end of the show for the night, Cobhams Asuquo who produced the independent soundtrack album for ‘Bent Arrows�came on stage and treated the stars and guests a wonderful rendition of the soundtracks of the movie. Stella Damasus who also featured in the soundtrack album of ‘Bent Arrows’, took over the stage after Cobhams and gave a great performance that left the audience spellbound.
The event was wrapped up with the writer and producer of the film Isang, Ubong Awah giving a vote of thanks to everyone present and sating that the story of ‘Bent Arrows’ is a reality that stares at us everyday with a lot of our young girls going out there without the fear of God in their hearts.
Available in cinemas across the country from April 15, 2011, ‘Bent Arrows’ tells the story of three young ladies and their trials in the hands of men, parents and the society and how it affects their individual life. The movie brings to mind the ills of the society against women and the undue parental intervention in the lives of young women and the ills of sexual abuse on young women.
