Lonzo Nzekwe is a Nigerian who has made his homeland proud in Canada where he resides with his movie Anchor Baby
The producer of the film, which recently received a Golden Palm Award at the Mexico International film festival, making it list of awards a total of seven international awards from ten International film festivals around the globe says “Right from its first screening, Canadians have been yearning to have the movie showing in cinemas in Canada but my patriotic sentiments made me bring the movie to Nigeria first and then to Ghana before showing it in Canada”
“Just like it was in Nigeria, Canadians are highly receptive to the movie and in the few weeks of its presence in the Canadian cinemas, the response has been mind blowing”
‘Anchor Baby’, which is set to be released in United Kingdom and Europe soon, tells the story of Joyce (Omoni Oboli) and Paul Unanga (Sam Sarpong), a married illegal immigrant couple living in the United States. In order to obtain a stay in the US, they decided to deliver a child there, who will have an automatic citizenship, but Joyce was only five months pregnant when the US immigration ordered them to leave the country by voluntary departure.
Determined to beat the US immigration’s order, Paul and Joyce went into hiding. Paul was later caught and deported leaving the pregnant Joyce to fight and achieve their dream. Struggle, pain, determination but hope came with this decision.
The multiple award film featured Omoni Oboli, Sam Sarpong, Terri Oliver, Colin Paradine, Mark Cassius, Michael Scratch, Cyrus Faird and Santiago Lopera and is currently being represented by ID Communications, a Montreal and Canada-based film marketing and distribution company.
