Justice Will Be Served: 'Higher Crime' Hits Theaters June 14th

The much-anticipated film "HIGHER CRIME," produced by Aniebiet Francis and directed by Uduakobong Patrick, is set to premiere in cinemas across Nigeria, Ghana, and French-speaking West Africa on June 14, 2024. Distributed by Tribe Nation Theatrical Distribution, this gripping drama delves into the courageous journey of Tife, portrayed by Enwongoabasi Ibom, a prominent blogger who brings to light the chilling truth of a woman's sexual assault, igniting a fierce legal battle with Jeffrey, a prominent philanthropist, played by Femi Branch.

The film features a vibrant ensemble cast, blending industry heavyweights like Femi Branch, Bimbo Akintola, and Keppy Ekpenyong with rising stars Enwongoabasi Ibom and Folashade Abimbola. Femi Branch, who recently starred as a villain in the acclaimed Disney-Kugali animated series "IWAJU," once again embraces a dark role as Jeffrey. Bimbo Akintola, known for blockbusters like "93 Days," stars as Jeffrey's loyal yet naive wife. Enwongoabasi Ibom, a rising actress and social media influencer, takes on the role of Tife, the fearless blogger determined to fight for justice. Nollywood legend Keppy Ekpenyong plays Jeffrey's lawyer, who helps Jeffrey leverage shared political connections to silence Tife, while newcomer Folashade Abimbola portrays Ruby, another victim of abuse.

"This film is a testament to the power of storytelling and the importance of speaking truth to power." - Executive Producer, Aniebiet Francis

The film is produced by Nigerian filmmaker and actress, Aniebiet Francis, under her production company, Amazing Arts Entertainment. Known for her hit 2019 film "The Final List," which blended comedy with social commentary on the bride price epidemic in Igbo culture, Francis takes a more dramatic approach with "HIGHER CRIME," addressing the pressing issue of sexual assault, within and outside the family unit. In an Instagram post on Wednesday, May 22, 2024, Francis shared the movie poster, announcing the film's release with the powerful statement, "Not all silence is golden."

The film is distributed globally by Tribe Nation Theatrical Distribution. "HIGHER CRIME" is the latest addition to our company's portfolio of domestic and international releases.
