NEW YORK – With a cast of internationally acclaimed award winning stars such as Isaiah Washington, Vivica A. Fox, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Genevieve Nnaji and Stephanie Okereke, veteran producer, director, writer and actor Tony Abulu is set to redefine the art of filmmaking.
The movie; “Dr Bello” depicts an uncertified Nigerian Doctor known in the Brooklyn-African underground as a miracle worker. Dr. Bello, an introvert with a controversial past, secretly visits the child at night and administers a strange African potion, replete with incantations and by the next morning, miraculously, the child begins to recover, the Cancer speeding into remission.
The Hospital Medical Board immediately orders an investigation and soon the secret is revealed and Dr. Durant, a brilliant cancer specialist is suspended. Dr. Bello is arrested and charged with medical malpractice. Dr. Durant soon falls into depression after his wife leaves him. Meanwhile, Dr. Bello has fallen critically ill in jail and can only be saved by the ingestion of the same potion that can only be found in the mysterious “Garden of Life,” nestled on the peak of Nigeria’s sky mountains.
Movie producer Abulu has spent 25 years in the U.S establishing a market for African themed entertainment products. He is the President of Filmmakers Association of Nigeria, USA as well as the CEO of Black Ivory Communications.
