    Hi Jide
    Thank you soooo much for showing Turning Point, for It was very good. I had a great time, laughing my way into the weekend nollywood style. :)

      Hey Charity it was good to see you again and thanks for bringing your sister. Hope she enjoyed it. It was brill watching a movie that actually had authentic Yoruba accents in it and a reasonable balance of good humour too. Thanks for leaving feedback as well and hope to see you sometime soon. :-)

      Hi Jide, it was good seeing you too, yes, both my sister and the friend I invited had a great time. I am so sorry I could not make it on Friday(28/2), I was feeling quite rough, and I hope to be there for the next showing Gods willing.

    I did enjoy some aspects of this film but halfway through began to feel that it was a little bit over the top, far fetched even - too much stuff was being piled on and it just lost some of the the realism for me.

      Hi Elaine, Firstly thank you for your support. It was a pleasure seeing you last night. Secondly, thank you for your most valued thoughts on the film and for actually taking the time out to feedback. All feedbacks are forwarded to the directors so that they get a feel for audience reactions on the works they've produced. Once again, it was great seeing you again.

    Dissapointing turnout for what were two UK based Directors but those lovely people that did turn up, I humbly salute you all. Thank you very much. I'm not quite sure how our community thinks we'll realise an improved wealth & quality in Black films, particularly from UK, Caribbean & Africa if it doesn't support independent exhibitors that support "black" owned establishments and struggling writers/Directors etc. I find it laughable when we scream "why slave films all the time" when other narritives are not supported within a Cinema type of environment. RANT OVER, we'll keep supporting even if others don't.

    Hi Tendai, that's a very interesting question you pose there. Does "The Black Odyssey" event charge at the BFI?

  • Tendai

    Are you charging now? I thought Mella Center didn't charge?
