93 days: The Ebola story needs to be told – Bolanle Austen-Peters

Managing Director and Founder of renowned Arts and Cultural organisation, Terra Culture, Bolanle Austen-Peters is a hardworking and inspiring woman who has taken bold steps towards achieving her dreams and establishing herself as an authority. In this interview, the accomplished lawyer and businesswoman talks about her current production ’93 Days’, a movie on the deadly Ebola virus which broke out in the country a year ago. Excerpts…

By Juliet Ebirim

IT’s been over ten years of running Terra Kulture. How has it been?

Bolanle

Setting up Terra  Kulture  as an institution has been a most rewarding exercise often filled with adventure, frustrations and triumphs. Eleven years later, we can look back and thank God that the institution we started out with has been able to touch lives  and create jobs and entertainment.

Over time I’ve have been able to develop the concept of Terra  Kulture  as an institution and  a cultural centre that is  self-sustaining.  We have  also over time continued to churn out fresh business ideas to help improve the revenue of the  company, venturing into food,  entertainment, theatre  and now movies.

Our  in-depth knowledge of the Nigerian cultural scene  and cutting edge analysis of our  customers’  needs has strongly impacted on the business of Terra Kulture. With constant  stream of  ideas and  always thinking of how to make the business better,  we’ve been able to stay at the fore front of the industry.

At Terra Kulture, we are  constantly thinking of what next to do, always taking on challenges and always striving to be the best in the industry . So  far, I will say it has been a fascinating journey.

Why did you decide to venture into movie making?

My decision to become  a movie producer started  with the production of stage plays. As a play Director/Producer, I have always had to work with the best actors, dancers, choreographers, stage and set designers, costumiers, make-up artists etc.

Feature filmproduction

With this vast experience venturing into feature film production becomes almost inevitable. I think for me it’s a transition, it’s the next stage. After the production of SARO  The Musical which was an instant success, I realized there is room for expansion and diversification and so  I  thought feature films won’t be a bad idea, so we promoted  October 1 which was also an amazing success.

This year I’ve produced a short film and now working on 93 Days with Steve  Gukas  and an International Director Pemon  Rami And Dotun Olakunrin.

Why did you choose to do a movie on Ebola?

Essentially, the Ebola story needs to be told. We need to tell our own stories. Our experience with the virus needs to be televised properly which is why I agreed to work with the directors we have on board presently.

The script is beautifully written and we have people who had first-hand experience with survivors and families of those who gave their lives to ensure the virus did not spread. We owe it a duty to those who gave their lives to tell this story of how we combated and won the Ebola battle, so for me its philanthropy.

What’s the budget for the movie?

This movie will cost a whopping significant amount of money in millions.

Who are the members of cast and what informed your choice in this regard?

The cast include Danny Glover (USA), Bimbo  Akintola, Gideon  Okeke, Bimbo Manuel,  Adebola  Williams, Patrick Dibuah and Somekele  Iyamah amongst others.  Choosing the cast for this movie was a collective effort of the producers and directors,  we had to look for people who can interpret their roles perfectly with some resemblance to the actual victims.

What has been your experience so far working on this project?

My experience so far has been an interesting one, it’s been time and resource consuming but productive, and hopefully at the end of the day our viewers will appreciate our effort.

What are the challenges you’ve encountered in the course of this production?

The most basic challenge for any production is funding, so we are working with both local and international institutions to fund this project including Ford Foundation, Nigerian Breweries, Fieldco, Axa Mansard, Lagos State Ministry of Health and so many individuals to guarantee its outstanding success.

What are your projections for the movie?

We intend to immortalize our heroes whilst also showing Nigerians that in unity we can overcome, we hope to educate the populace  about patriotism and goodwill. We hope the movie makes history.

Actor Danny Glover in Nigeria to star in movie about Ebola

LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) — U.S. actor Danny Glover said Thursday that he is in Nigeria to star in a movie based on people who risked and sacrificed their lives to stop the spread of Ebola in Africa’s most populous country.

Glover said he is proud to take part in the film, called “93 Days,” because of the achievements made by the real-life characters. Nigerian actress Bimbo Akintola will portray Dr. Stella Ameyo Adadevoh, who along with her team diagnosed the first Ebola case in Nigeria.

Adadevoh put the patient under quarantine, and stubbornly refused to discharge the Liberian man who was sick with the infection despite pressure.

Adadevoh eventually died along with three other hospital staff that had contracted the disease. Her actions ensured that the fast-spreading viral infection was quickly contained.

Glover will portray the director of the hospital where Adadevoh worked.

Akintola said the movie is a story of how Nigeria— a country where many institutions have weakened due to endemic corruption and ethnic strife — triumphed over the spread of Ebola, which ravaged her West African neighbors of Guinea, Sierra-Leone and Liberia

“Nigerians acted as one. There was nothing about you being from different ethnicity or different political party, it was about Nigerians just standing up and doing this incredible thing for Nigeria,” Akintola said.

She said the movie will be about courage in the face of death. “The doctors at First Consult (hospital) didn’t ask for an Ebola patient. They weren’t expecting it. But they stood up to the plate when it turned out the patient had Ebola. No one run away. That is courage in the face of death,” Akintola said.

About 12,000 people fly out of Nigeria daily to different corners of the globe, Akintola said, adding that an Ebola outbreak in Nigeria would have had a devastating effect on the world.

According to the World Health Organization, news of the first Ebola case in Nigeria on July 23 last year rocked public health communities all around the world.

“Nigeria is Africa’s most populous country and its newest economic powerhouse. For a disease outbreak, it is also a powder keg. The number of people living in Lagos — around 21 million — is almost as large as the populations of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone combined,” WHO said last year in a publication about the outbreak.

Lagos also is characterized by a large population living in crowded and unsanitary conditions in many slums, it said.

Thousands of people move in and out of Lagos, Africa’s largest city, every day, constantly looking for work or markets for their products in a busy metropolis with frequent traffic gridlocks, said WHO, adding that officials were worried how they would manage to trace people who had come into contact with persons infected with Ebola in order place them in isolation.

“The last thing anyone in the world wants to hear is the two words, ‘Ebola’ and ‘Lagos’ in the same sentence,” said WHO, quoting Jeffrey Hawkins, the United States Consul General in Nigeria at the time.
