Producer of IJE set to record another milestone with DVD sales. For Chineze Anyaene (pictured below), the director and producer of the highest grossing Nollywood movie of all time at the cinema, IJE, it is time to record another milestone as the movie hits the DVD market from Monday, December 3, 2012.
IJE showed for several weeks at the cinema in year 2010 and made well over N70m on that platform and was only beaten by the Hollywood flick, Avengers (in 2012), it was not surprising when the much talked about movie out- sold highly rated Hollywood flicks, Avatar, Salt, Spiderman and others.
The movie features unarguably two of the biggest Nollywood stars in this clime, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Genevieve Nnaji among others. One unique feature about IJE and its producer, Chineze Anyaene is that the movie was her final year thesis at the famous filmmaking school, New York Film Academy where she obtained her Masters’ degree in filmmaking and became the first student in the history of the program to shoot a feature film as her thesis while in school and the first student in the history of KODAK to shoot a feature film on 35mm.
IJE tells a tale of Chioma, a child growing up in the Nigerian countryside who warned her restless sister, Anya about the trappings of the American Dream. Now ten years later, Anya is accused of killing three men in a Hollywood Hills mansion- one of them her record producer-husband. Chioma travels from Nigeria to Los Angeles, and with the help of a young, unproven attorney, discovers that the dark secret her sister wants to keep hidden might be the only thing that can win her freedom.Fans can also follow the movie on micro-blogging site, Twitter @IJETheJourney or @bigsammedia for more information.
