Remember Katung Aduwak? He was the winner of the very first winner of Big Brother Nigeria in 2006 and now he has a new movie, Heaven’s Hell.
The movie which stars an impressive roster of Nollywood actors including,Nse Ikpe-Etim, Bimbo Akintola, Damilola Adegbite, OC Ukeje, Gideon Okeke, Linda Ejiofor, Chet Anekwe, Kalu Ikeagwu, Bimbo Manuel, Katherine Obiang, Femi Jacobs, Waje, and Fabian Lojede tells the story of two friends and their husbands.
Heaven’s Hell centers on abuse, telling the story of two very different kinds of abuse, one was Physical and the other Emotional.
The movie is set to release on the 10th of May 2019 and it has received a lot of attention especially as it tackles a topic that is very poignant in today’s world which is more sensitive to abuse and the implications.
Katung, who revealed that the movie is based on a true story, said of the movie: “I think Heaven’s Hell will feel as real to many as it felt to me when I heard the original story, as real as it felt to the original characters too because there is a victim in almost everyone we know, we have all just become really great at masking our true issues in order to be accepted and validated by society. No one is worth putting up fronts for… in fact almost everything you see on social media is not real, it’s just a place where people can get validation,”
And he’s right, Heaven’s Hell passes across a very important message as there is a serious fixation on social media and the kind of life that is put forward all in the name of likes and comments.
Heaven’s Hell is Katung’s directorial debut and to date is the only movie on his filmography, but you can be certain that it will be a riveting watch.
