The 24-year-old daughter of Delta State Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan, Orode Okpu-Uduaghan, has entered the world of Nollywood film production. She produced a movie titled 'Living Funeral' which features renowned actors Liz Benson-Ameye and Nobert Young.
Veteran actress, Liz Benson, made a return to Nollywood after a 14-year absence. She says being an evangelist was pivotal in motivating her to accept the script.
The movie deals with health issues, particularly, creating awareness about breast cancer.
"With my status as a pastor, I have to be critical on the movies or productions I appear in," Liz Benson said. "As someone that counsels people in church, I identify with the challenge women face here as I have had to encourage women to go for a scan when they tell me their health challenges. Living Funeral is a great movie as it X-rays the scourge of breast cancer among women."
Living Funeral was made under the auspice of Orode's Pink Pearl Breast Cancer Foundation and premiered October 27, 2013. The Udoka Oyeka-directed movie has since been nominated in eight categories at the Africa Magic Viewer's Choice Awards; the event will be held on March 8, 2014.
