Rogers Ofime’s game-changing film ‘Conversations in Transit’ has officially wrapped principal photography.
Confirming the completion of filming, actor Alexx Ekubo, who plays a supporting role in the film, shared an Instagram post praising the filmmaker and the project.
“Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu once said; To make a film is easy, to make a good film is war, to make a very good film is a miracle,” Ekubo wrote.
“Let me add, attempting to shoot a film entirely on a moving train in Nigeria is utter madness. What @rogersofime & the entire cast & crew of @citthemovie are doing is nothing short of a Mad War Miracle, & I’m glad to be part of the gladiators.”
‘Conversations in Transit,’ directed by Robert Peters and written by Ummi Baba-Ahmed, Tope Bolade-Akinbode, and Dichie Enunwa, follows the story of an heiress, Hajara, an event planner, Ini, and a career woman, Adeola on a train ride. As they deal with their troubling circumstances, all three ladies must make decisions about their future.
Richard Mofe-Damijo, Osas Ighodaro, Alexx Ekubo, Rahama Sadau, Tope Tedela, Uzee Usman, Tana Adelana, and Yvonne Nelson are among the cast members.
Remember that Ofime first announced the herculean project in October 2021, calling it a first in Nollywood.
“It is with great excitement that we announce the unveiling of a new film experience, the first of its kind in this part of Africa. Great movie production has been achieved in Nollywood over the years. Native Media and our other colleagues in the industry have consistently kept the Nigerian flag flying,” the filmmaker said at an event unveiling the film. He further revealed that the Nigerian Railway Corporation and the Ministry of Transportation well fully involved in the project.
Principal photography finally began in early February, with Ofime announcing the film’s major cast.
