Nollywood Travel Film Festival - Eagle Wings (2021)
The Dutch edition of the Nollywood Travel Film Festival concludes with the closing film Eagle Wings (2021) at Melkweg. Director Papel Apel will be present during the Dutch premiere of his film for an introduction and Q&A.
A challenge on many levels
Eagle Wings is a war drama, the first ever made in Nigeria, about an Air Force fighter pilot who becomes entangled in the world of insurgents. When a newly married commander gets lost behind enemy lines, his brothers-in-arms vow to bring him home safely.
The rescue mission leads them into a war-torn area and straight into a terrorist stronghold where their loyalties are tested. Eagle Wings explores the challenge of fighting for life, peace, freedom and love in times of great violence.
