Geshin Salvador’s “Ticket to Life” for September theatrical debut
Meroestream and Nubian productions have confirmed the theatrical debut of its latest collaboration, Ticket to Life.
Directed by ace filmmaker Geshin Salvador, the film is based on a story by Tomisin Ayoade with a script by Miskeen Anav and hits cinemas on 23 September.
According to the producers, it tells a multifaceted tale that’ll leave film lovers on the edge of their seats.
“We wanted to make a film that is true to the Nigerian reality instead of a Hollywood wannabe. It was important to find a very good script, cast brilliant actors who deliver 10/10 and give the project to a director who is passionate about storytelling. We think we nailed it with Ticket to Life,” said Olayinka Quadri, the film’s Executive Producer.
“This film depicts the Nigerian reality so well,”the filmmaker added. “The actors bring something different to their previous work, it is funny and beautifully shot. The audience will come away talking about it and quoting the actors.”
Ticket to Life stars an ensemble cast including Sambasa Nzeribe, Linda Osifo, Debby Emokpaire, Tina Mba and Christian Ochiagha.
After coming to Lagos from the village in search of greener pastures, Nafisat soon realises that the grass is not as green as she had envisaged when she discovers a haunting secret. She must then make a deal with an archenemy to preserve her only means of survival against another enemy.
Ticket to Life premieres across cinemas nationwide on Friday 23 September 2022.
