Liberty Films releases Painful Gains

By Alayande Dayo

Frontline movie production and marketing outfit, Liberty Films, has hit shelves with their latest blockbuster nationwide.

Entitled Painful Gains, the big budget movie was shot in Calabar, the capital of Cross River State with an intimidating cast and crewmembers.

Starring Nollywood veteran Justus Esiri alongside other equally good hands like: Vivian Anani, Moses Efret, Moses Armstrong and evangelist Helen Ukpabio, who also doubles as the flick's producer cum executive producer, Painful Gains, is already enjoying rave-reviews among pundits and movie buffs, even beyond our shores.

In a chat with us, Ukpabio who is also the General Overseer of Liberty Foundation Gospel Ministries disclosed that Painful Gains, just like other past movies from her stable is aimed at the lost, oppressed, afflicted, possessed, tormented, ignorant and even the innocent.

“All the movies from our stable are also means of spreading the gospel in preparation for rapture. They are also based on topical themes centred around the homes, the kids, the unbelievers and the erring ones” the televangelist pointed out.

Directed by Stanley Williams, Painful Gains revolves around Chief Attah (Justus Esiri), and his political cohorts, who all reveled in iniquities with their families constantly backsliding from the faith. The flick further captures the moral decadence in the society occasioned by the failure of those in authority and its attendant hazards on the masses.

Written and screen played by Ukpabio, Painful Gains, has further repositioned Liberty Film with close to 20 quality movies to their credit, as one of the leading brands in Nollywood.

Meanwhile, some past hit and critically acclaimed movies churned for maximum home enjoyment by Liberty Films include: Holy Crime, End of the Wicked,

The coven, Married to a Witch, Highway to the Grave and Magic Money. Others are: Power to Bind, Wasted Years, I was Wrong, Rapture, Child Rescue among others.
