Rita Dominic and Joseph Benjamin lead the cast in a recently completed production of DESECRATION, a star studded cinematic thriller produced by Bode Odetoye of Kherut Films. Helming the motion picture as director is international multi-award winner, Niyi Towolawi of HekCentrik Films.
Set and shot in London, UK, the film stars Nollywood heavyweights, Rita Dominic, Joseph Benjamin and Rykardo Agboh, alongside UK actors of both Nigerian and British backgrounds, such as Nicola Alexis (currently starring in Harry Porter musical), Max Cavenham, Moji Bamtefa, Ken Smart and delightful seven year old Angel Agala. Incidentally, this is director Towolawi’s first feature film set in London, having shot his previous three in the US and Nigeria.
Says Bode Odetoye about the project: “after years of following his work and a few more spent planning to do something together, it was great to finally work with Niyi Towolawi. I call him my erudite director and it was a positive experience that I can’t wait to do all over again.” About the experience of his debut production, Odetoye continues, “It was a steep learning curve but one that I will treasure”.

The film explores how a casual fling quickly becomes a living nightmare for Olushola Daniels and his family, after being captivated by one other than his wife.
Niyi Towolawi adds, “it was an absolute pleasure shooting a feature in London and getting the opportunity to photograph this beautiful city, working with close allies and a producer that allowed me so much space to put my signature as an auteur on the film”.
Desecration will premiere on the 11th of November 2016 at The Lighthouse, London and is set for cinema release across Africa and beyond in 2017. See Trailer Here: DESECRATION - Trailer
