Francisca Eleyele’s ‘A White Garment Experience’ Set For World Premiere In Texas
Nigerian filmmaker, Francisca Eleyele’s ‘A White Garment Experience’ has been confirmed for a world premiere in Texas.
The documentary on the well-known Nigerian Christian denomination Cherubim and Serephim explores the role and portrayal of the church in the media.
Narrated by actor Okey Uzoeshi, a non-member, the documentary follows an insightful ‘white garment story from a place of authentic truth, shining a light on certain fallacies and exploring the Aladura churches journey from inception.’
While speaking about the documentary, Francisca Eleyele who directed the movie stated how being open-minded helped in creating the magic.
“I wanted to try as much as possible to balance the scales in telling the White Garment Experience story. As a non-member of the church, it was imperative I keep an open mind and tell it as factual and interesting as can be.
“Talking to fellow ‘Nollywooders’ about their perspective and certain representations of the church in our movies was quite interesting because we always make the Aladura churches the butt of the joke in Nollywood. It was definitely an eye opener for everyone who worked on this project and being able to experience some things first hand was pretty refreshing. I am really excited to share this work with the world, my DOP Nora Awolowo understood the assignment and I am excited with the work Adam Songbird, ID Tones & Israel Classic have done with the Original Sound Tracks.”
The documentary, ‘A White Garment Experience’ which was filmed in Dallas, Texas, Ikare, Lagos, and other locations, also stars directors ID Cabasa, Bimbo Akintola, and Niyi Akinmolayan. Its November 2022 global debut at the Irving Center in Texas has been scheduled.
