Speaking with Richard Quest on Tuesday night, Genevieve discussed how she was able to gather funds for the production of the movie and the chances of Nollywood gaining global acceptance.

On how she was able to put the movie together, ”For money, we had to self-fund unfortunately, she says, we don’t have adequate funding for movies that we actually intend to go global, there isn’t that provision yet.”

She also explained that Nollywood stands a good chance of going global anytime soon, but she sees language as the only problem that stands as a barrier.

Lionheart captures the challenges of a female in a male-dominated industry.

It is a story of Adaeze, a young lady who steps up to the challenge when her father, Chief Ernest Obiagu, is forced to take a step back from his company due to health issues.

She works with her crude and eccentric brother to save the family business in dire financial straits resulting in crazy and often hilarious results.

Genevieve Nnaji stars with a solid line up that features Nkem Owoh, Pete Edochie, and Onyeka Onwenu in the movie.
