‘Victims’ a movie by Mercy Aigbe focuses on domestic violence, particularly among married couples.
CEO of Mag Divas, Mercy Aigbe has been busy trying to promote her new movie ‘Victims’. She posted on her instagram page that her movie private screening will be on November 1 in Lagos.
In an recent interview with Naij.com, the actress/movie director and producer, stated that her movie addresses domestic violence, especially among married couples.
In her words;
“Victims is about a young lady who had to go through a lot of things in life; most importantly, things she didn’t call for but she was born into. A lot of people go through a lot of experiences not because they brought it upon themselves but maybe it’s a curse or destiny. It is an emotional movie and full of suspense. (It’s a) movie that I know, if it eventually hits the market, people will ove and learn from it.”
Mercy also added that why many marriages are failing is because couples ‘are not ready to compromise on so many things’:
“I believe that now-a-days people don’t really respect the institution called marriage because they are not patient enough to want to bear so many things that come with being in such a union. They just forget that they are different individuals who come from different backgrounds and have different upbringing. They are not ready to compromise on so many things. They are just not ready and that is why so many marriages are not working.”
On her instagram page, Mercy Aigbe posted that her Movie ‘Victims’ ‘scooped’ five nominations at the 12th edition of Abuja Film Festival.
