21:00 Doors 21:15 Eagle Wings (2021)

This night the Dutch edition of the Nollywood Travel Film Festival ends with the closing film Eagle Wings (2021). Director Papel Apel will be present during the Dutch premiere of his film for an introduction and Q&A.

Eagle Wings, Nigeria's first-ever military movie, tells the story of an airforce fighter pilot who is caught in the harrowing world of insurgency. When a recently married commander is lost behind enemy lines, his brothers-in-arms swear to bring him home safely. The rescue mission leads them into war-torn territory and directly into a terrorist stronghold where loyalties are put to the test. Exploring the challenge of fighting for life, peace, and the freedom to love in the face of great violence, Eagle Wings is an uplifting journey through a terror-filled landscape and the power of newly found love, faith, duty and sacrifice.
