‘Gone To America’ – The first feature film by Silverbird Group is in production!

Silverbird Group - the foremost name in entertainment in Nigeria founded by renowned businessman and distinguished Senator Ben Murray Bruce has added yet another feather to their cap; they have delved into film making with the production of their very first feature film, ‘Gone To America’ in collaboration with “The Atuma Brothers International Company -TABIC

  
Multiple award winning Nigerian-born but Canada/USA –based filmmakerPascal Atuma(LAPD African Cops, My American Nurse, Bloodlinesetc.) is the Writer & Director of the film. The Producers are Stella Albright – Bruce, June Slaton – Bruce, Dr. Oscar Atuma and Pascal Atuma. GONE TO AMERICAthe film is Executive Produced by the Silverbird Group.
 The movie boasts a star-studded cast such as -Ali Baba, FunkeAkindele, Steve Onu popularly known as Yaw, Ini Edo, JideKosoko, Funky Mallam, EniolaBadmus, IyaboOjo, Francis Odega, Anita IfeomaIsedeh otherwise known as Omalicha, Yvonne Jegede, Ben Nwosu, Nora Roberts, Rich Tanksley, andAmerican music legend Jeffrey Daniels from the famous Shalamar group and presently Judge/Directing Talent Manager of the Nigerian Idol. The movie also features upcoming stars Bridget Chigbufue,Abraham Ebini, Chris Utiand Pandora Eboh to mention a few.
The movie is about Okoro, a simple gateman who was going through the trials of the lowest class of working class families in Nigeria. He was indebted to his landlord to the extent where he was dehumanized, lost a right to his privacy and could no longer enjoy the quietness of his home. Battling with sleepless nights, an opportunity, out of the blues presented for him to travel to America, courtesy of a green card lottery entered for him by his long-term master’s nephew. America, the land of the free and home of the brave beckons… but alas it is Donald Trump’s America with some strong-faced, nonsense Immigration officers, ready with their batons to defend the gateway to their great land by ‘any means necessary’! The comedy and fiasco that ensures between Okoro and these immigration officers, and whether he succeeds in getting through immigration isbetter seen than told. ‘Gone to America’ is a humorous take on naïve immigrants whose dreams are set on arriving to America in search of greener pastures,but have to contend with Post-Trump policies.
The movie is set to screen in cinemas nationwide from 10th November 2017. It is being marketed and distributed by Silverbird Distribution Limited.

Pascal Atuma is trying but movies production and acting is not by force. Even with all the resources at his disposal, he keeps churning out mediocre productions. Good scripts sometimes but very poor acting.

Have you seen the movie already? Demonic agents looking forward to condemn the creativity of others. Pascal is indeed master of the game. I have followed is movies in Canada.

I wonder how some of us reason. We attach sentiment to everything in life. The truth is the gurus in Nigerian films, stars are in the film. Gone to America, I believed is a movie that is absolutely going entertain, educate and enlighten us. My family and I are visually prepared to enjoy the movie. Thumbs to Pascal Atuma, Ben Bruce and the acting crews.
