Fierce off the Red Carpet: Ini Edo, Desmond Elliot, Monalisa Chinda, others at the premiere of ‘Silver Lining’


The Premiere of ‘Silver Lining’; the short film on Autism was held on Sunday, 27th May 2012 with much fanfare. It was a beautiful evening of fun, laughter, tears, sober reflection and much hope! The event took place at 10A Ikoya street, off MacPherson street, Ikoyi and had guests were treated to a lovely movie produced by Emem Isong and Uduak Oguamanam for the Patrick Speech and Languages Centre.

Proprietress of the Centre, Mrs Dotun Akande, could not hide her delight at the successful turn out at the event.

I’m thankful to God for making this event possible. We have been holding events for some years now but this marks a number of firsts; the first time we are premiering a film in conjunction with my good friends in Nollywood (Royal Arts) and the first time a film has been shot on the subject of Autism in Nigeria. It is my hope that it brings awareness about the condition in Nigeria‘.
