In 93 Days, Gukas tells story of Adadevoh’s bravery


Gukas
A new film titled, 93 Days and directed by Steve Gukas is about to hit the cinemas soon. The movie revolves around the true-life story of men and women, who risked their lives and made the supreme sacrifice to save Nigeria and the rest of Africa from the dire consequences of an expanded outbreak of the highly contagious and dreaded Ebola Virus Disease.
Beyond the entertainment value, 93 Days seeks to answer a frightening question: What happens when the most lethal and contagious disease known to man arrives in a megacity of over 20 million people?
However, it is a human story of dedication, sacrifice, resilience and survival. Directed by Steve Gukas, the movie was produced by Bolanle Austen-Peters, Dotun Olakunri and Steve Gukas.
It is also an account of the bravery exhibited by the late Dr. Stella Adadevoh and her colleagues in their encounter with the late American-Liberian, Patrick Sawyer, and efforts made to stop the disease’s spread in the country.

During the period, Adadevoh and her colleagues did not only prevent a national catastrophe and international contagion, but also left a permanent mark on society and solidified their legacy as courageous Nigerians.
The movie also examines the roles played by the the Lagos State Government, the Federal Government, World Health Organisation, MSF and other organisations to check the Ebola scourge.
The film, thrives on a blend of local and international actors/actresses. Renowned American theatre practitioner and filmmaker, Pemon Rami, is part of the team.
A statement from the producers says, “Our aim is to create a feature film that will resonate with many people across the world particularly in Nigeria and its sub-region. At its core, 93 Days is a tale of common humanity and just how much a people can achieve when they stand united.”
The project is a co-production between Michel Angelo Production, Bolanle Austen-Peters Production and Natives FilmWorks.
Austen-Peters said, “We recognise that we have to tell our own stories. Also we recognize that hardly ever are all the stars aligned to allow Nigeria and Nigerians shine on the international scene. Our role is to celebrate our heroes and Nigeria on the global scene.”
