Ramsey Nouah and Rita Dominic are making a return to the big screen, this time they are starring in “77: The FESTAC Conspiracy,” directed by Izu Ojukwu. This film serves as a sequel to the 2016 historical thriller “76.”
Set in the backdrop of the Festac ’77 Arts and Culture Festival organized by the Nigerian government and UNESCO in 1977, “77” delves into the significant events surrounding this pivotal Pan-African gathering. The festival played a crucial role in the establishment of Festac Village and the National Theatre in Lagos.

Renowned for his knack for historical narratives, Izu Ojukwu takes the helm as director, while the screenplay, penned by newcomer Olisa Eloka, is produced by Adonis Production – the same company that brought us “76.” Pat Nebo takes charge of the art direction, while Peter Kreil handles the cinematography.
