Vivian Williams will be debuting her feature film, Unveil, across Nigerian cinemas on the 12th of May, 2017. The film which premiered in Calgary on the 4th of March, 2017, has been described as suspense-filled and “gbedulicious”.
The drama follows an ambitious young woman (Meg) who left Nigeria in search of a better life in North America. After several years of hard work, she decides to return to Nigeria in hopes of reconnecting with her family but instead loses everything. Now she has to fight to get her life back. Like Lani Aisida and the Plus 234 series, this film is an adaptation from the writer’s personal experience.
