Having studied the success of yoruba movie sector (ANTP), the hausa movie (kallywood) and the speed at which the akwa ibom/cross-rivers language films are raising, it is heart braking that igbo language films which started the NOLLYWOOD, is hardly on the movie shelves.
so many igbo films organisations had been launched in the past,but hardly did they produce any successful igbo films before going scattered. The need to revive the igbo language films and making stay favourably compete with the world class films,has driven Torty Joseph, popularly known as DONTORTY into birthing what he calls the EASTERNWOOD. The Easternwood is a revolution in NOLLYWOOD,because Nollywood started with an Igbo language films and this newly introduced caucus will produce all genres of igbo films. Speaking with Torty Joseph, the initiator of the caucus said "We do not believe in mediocrity,quality is our watch word,ranging from actors , equipment,crew and we do not compromise quality. Our first film AFO IME (The pregnancy) and it will be released soon. I believe it's a good starting point and a good statement to begin with. We intend to premier our next film and also go into cinema houses across Nigeria and Europe. It is titled IHE OSO (stampede).Ihe oso will parade blazing upcoming actors to be casted from auditions across the five eastern states-Umuahia,owerri,awka, enugu and abakaliki".
