Half of a Yellow Sun is a beautifully crafted adaptation and flies off the pages of the international best seller by our very own Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

Set in 1960s Nigeria, Half of a Yellow Sun is an enormously powerful, entertaining, and uplifting epic love-story, weaving the lives of four people swept up in the turbulence of love and war. Half of a yellow Sun has struck a special chord with moviegoers around the world and is set to move the nation of its birth in a big way.

With world-wide rave reviews, a world-class creative team (of vast Nigerian ancestry), and a tale that speaks directly to the psyche of every conscious Nigerian, Half of a Yellow Sun is a historic, poignant and hugely momentous chapter in Nigeria’s emergence on the world film stage. The film is set to redefine movie-making and movie-going in Nigeria.
