"War Is Coming," is a short film from the Nigerian production company The Critics Company, produced by Morgan Freeman and his producing partner Lori McCreary. The production of the film is done under Freeman and McCreary production label, Revelations Entertainment. The short film tells the tale of Ola, a brash teenager who learns he is the reincarnation of a demigod and spirals into his destiny, unaware of the consequences of this realization.
The movie will made its debut at the +234 Connect Festival: A Celebration of Nigerian Creativity at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art. Additionally, it will simultaneously be made available on The Critics Company's well-known YouTube channel. The Smithsonian's National Museum, according to McCreary, "was a natural way to premiere the film and introduce the world to the uniquely talented Critics in person."
The Critics, a group of teenagers who range in age from 17 to 21, rose to fame on social media after the release of their smartphone-produced sci-fi short "The Chase" in 2019. Freeman and McCreary claim that their business, Revelations Entertainment, is on a mission to "reveal truth." The company also produced the award - winning "Invictus," "5 Flights Up," and the documentary "The C Word," in addition to the popular CBS television series "Madam Secretary," starring Tea Leoni and Tim Daly.
However, the Critics Company is based in Kaduna, Nigeria. Since their formation in 2015, they have been motivated by the desire to use film to produce "magical experiences" for both themselves and their community at large. It is worthy of note that their work has been highlighted on websites like the Indie Film Festival, the BBC, CNN, Reuters, and Al-Jazeera.
