The trailer of the movie, Eagle Wings, the much-awaited film production between a Nollywood producer and the Nigerian Air Force is finally out.
Eagle Wings a film produced by Paul Apel Papel, a Colorado Film School-trained filmmaker. The Eagle Wings movie is a poignant action war drama about an Airforce Fighter Pilot who is caught in the harrowing world of insurgency.
According to the producer, the film explores the often tragic, yet thrilling business of fighting for life, peace, and the freedom to love in the face of great violence.
“Overall, it is an uplifting journey through a terror-filled landscape and the power of newly found love, faith, duty and sacrifice,” he noted.
With this project, Mr Papel said he will be able to successfully tell not just any story, but an original African story from a place of power and grace.
Mr Papel said he has pushed all boundaries and taken new risks, not just with the storyline, but also with the quality of production he seeks to put out.
“This first of a kind movie is being shot using the Atlaslensco Orion 2x anamorphic lenses on the Alexa mini cameras, shooting OpenGate-the first to be ever done in West Africa and Nollywood at large,” he said.
