North Korean Govt. Warns Nollywood Over Provocative Film

According to reports gathered from Premium Times, the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) said on Monday that the North Korean Mission in Nigeria had made a formal complaint to it over the illegal distribution of a film which the mission regarded as provocative.

This was contained in a statement issued by the head of Corporate Affairs of NFVCB, Mike Ekunno.

The statement said that the North Korean mission viewed the movie as not only provocative but also targeted at instigating inciting the assassination of the North Korean Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-un.

A 2014 American political satire film, The Interview, directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg had generated controversy across the world for depicting the assassination of the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un.

According to the statement, the North Korean Ambassador in Nigeria, Jong Choi, expressed displeasure with the movie during a courtesy call to the NFVCB.

The name of the controversial Nollywood movie was not revealed in the report. However, Nigeria Movie Network would attempt to reach out to NFVCB to confirm the name of the said provocative film and update this page with new findings.
