By NBF News

Jeta Amata
It took a whole year to produce, had two countries on different continents as setting , had local and international actors in it and shot on celluloid. The entire crew are from Los Angeles. I'm sure you will agree with me that Inale and Black Gold are two films that have raised Nigerian film standard. Jeta Amata has just finished post- production efforts on the two movies.

Inale is a romantic musical on Idomaland of Benues state. The film reflects the music of Bongos Ikwue, who is Executive Producer of the film. It features US stars , Hakeem Kae Kazim of Hotel Rwanda, and Caroline Chikezie of Eragon Mistress with Spices.

Black Gold, is a true story on the struggle in the Niger Delta. It features international stars like Billy Zane of Titanic, Sarah Wayne Callies of Prison Break, Hakeem Kae Kazim as well Mbong Amata of Amazing Grace. Nigerian stars involved are Dede Mabiaku, Fred Amata, Barbara Soky and more.

Jeta just returned from Hollywood where the editing of the films was done. These films are the first of Nollywood's patnership with Hollywood . Arrangements are already on course to do Jeta Amata's next film, Road to Redemption which features Billy Ray Cyrus of Hannah Montana.

Inale was funded by Bongus Igwe with partners from the US and some support from Benue and Nassarawa state governments while Black Gold was funded by Weels Entertainment, Canada , Rock City Entertainment, Hollywood and Jeta Amata concepts Nigeria . This is another movie set for local and international awards.
