Genevieve Nnaji Screens Her “Lionheart” Movie at 2018 Marrakech Film Festival

Yesterday, Genevieve Nnaji screened her groundbreaking directorial debut, Lionheart, at the ongoing 2018 Marrakech Film Festival.

This was confirmed by the official Twitter page for the festival which shared some photos of the actress-director and Maduka Funa on the red carpet tonight. And this comes three months after Netflix acquired the global rights of the much-talked-about movie, making Nnaji the first Nigerian to sell to Netflix.

A bit about the film:

Running a company can be challenging, especially if you are a female in a male-dominated industry. Looking to prove her worth, Adaeze steps up to the challenge when her father, Chief Ernest Obiagu is forced to take a step back due to health issues. Ironically, he appoints his crude and eccentric brother, Godswill, instead to run the company with his young daughter. Complications arise when they discover that the family business is in dire financial straits and both Adaeze and Godswill try to save the company in their own way to crazy and often hilarious results.
