A MORD Pictures production for entertainment company TASC, The Meeting was produced by Rita Dominic and Mildred Okwo. It was directed by Mildred Okwo, and superbly written by Tunde Babalola.
The story set in Abuja follows the trials of Lagos-based corporate executive Makinde Esho (Femi Jacobs) who finds himself at the mercy of political patronage, bureaucratic red tape and Cupid’s arrow while in hot pursuit of a ‘meeting’ to secure a government contract.
The Meeting addresses an array of contemporary issues audiences are sure to identify with from love to African time, to the trials of tackling officials and manoeuvring red tape. It also brings together a stellar cast of Nollywood stars that are sure to draw audiences to the cinemas in October.
