Group plans outreach as The Saviour premieres ahead Good Friday
In commemoration of this year’s Easter celebration, a group of Christians has ushered in the season with a movie, titled: The Saviour.
The movie was premiered on Thursday at Silverbird Cinema, Ikeja, Lagos to some celebrities and movie enthusiasts.
The Saviour ignites the spirit of Easter, just as in the good old days, when Jesus’ movies set an ambience for relishing the season. The movie is coming on the heels of renewed interest by movie lovers in faith-based genre, which is fast making a return to cinemas after years of absence.
Speaking about his experience after screening of the epic drama, a gospel music minister Elijah Isen popularly known as Eli J, said: “I am touched by the movie. There are different versions of Jesus movies over the years, but there is something unique about this. It was like a story telling movie, well connected from the beginning to the end. It’s a movie for all ages. From the start of the movie to the end, you will thank God for sending Jesus to the world.”
On why Cloveworld Production in collaboration with Loveworld Television Ministry chose to embark on this project, the project manager for the movie, Pastor Sunday Akebor, said: “When I saw the trailer of the movie, I knew it is a movie for this time, because it is different from the ones we have known about the life, ministry, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. In The Saviour, you can easily relate what the Bible was trying to describe about Jesus. It gives you a vivid mental notation of biblical narration. It’s very captivating and a must watch for all movie lovers.”
