Chigozie Atuanya is set to premiere his movie "Chetanna" in his state of origin, Anambra.

Set to be the first premiere in Akwa, the premiere will take place on Friday, December 18, 2015 at Marble Arch Hotel, by 4.pm.

Directed by Ikechukwu Onyeka, the movie features Queen Nwokoye, Ebube Nwagbo, Ebele Okaro, and Chigozie Atuanya.



"Chetanna" is the gripping tale of an American returnee whose unbridled past in America has come to haunt his present in Africa.

A marriage gone sour; greed gives way to unprovoked vendetta and deep-rooted deceit until nemesis comes knocking while true love is caught in the web of mindless scheming.
