Nigerian lesbian movie ‘Ife’ set for release


Nigerian lesbian movie “Ife” produced by Pamela Adie and directed by Uyaiedu Ikpe-Etim is set for release despite stern warning from Nigerian Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) that the film (which means “love” in Yoruba language violates the country’s strict laws on homosexuality.


But according to a report by BBC, the filmmakers are planning a surprise release online. However the Censors Board is well aware and is diligently monitoring all digital platforms to checkmate the release of the movie.

According to the Adebayo Thomas, all individuals involved in the film could be risking jail terms of 14 years sentence for promoting homosexuality in a country where same-sex relationships are forbidden.


BBC reports also claim that the filmmakers are also planning a private release by the end of this month in which they feel they do not need the nod of the regulators. It is also being billed to be viewed in the international premiere in Canada in October.

“Ife” is a story about two women, played by Uzoamaka   Aniunoh and Cindy Amadi falling in love as they spend three days together. They “then have their love tested by the realities of being in a same-sex relationship in a country like Nigeria”, according to the publicity for the film.
