The filmmaker recently announced that the feature film will premiere at this year’s Brazil International Film Festival in Sao Paulo and Curitiba.

Executive produced by Jeff Jacobson with NuNu Deng and Edosio credited as co-producers, ‘Otiti’ formerly titled ‘Umuemu Oseme' (The Sins of the Father), follows a seamstress who solely takes on the responsibility of catering to her ailing father who abandoned her as a child.

In the lead role as the titular character is Gina Castel. The actress is joined by Charles Etubiebi, Tunde Daniels, Yinka Davies, Chimezie Imo, Obi Maduegbuna, Toritseju Ejoh among others.

The Chijioke Onuniwe scripted film will debut alongside other selected titles on July 5, 2022.

Reacting to the premiere, Edosio penned down an IG post sharing her emotions ahead of the anticipated premiere.

What do I look forward to the most? I look forward to sharing my film with a global audience,” Edosio wrote.

One of the joys of film-making is you cannot predict where and who's going to watch your film. You also cannot predict how the audience would react to it. This can be both exciting and nerve-racking.”

Edosio's critically acclaimed directorial debut 'Kasala!' debuted in cinemas in 2018. The film starring Gabriel Afolayan, Judith Audu, Emeka Nwagbaraocha, Tomiwa Tegbe, Chimezie Imoand Jide Kosoko went on to win multiple international awards.
