Oloibiri is a feature film based on true events around Nigeria’s Niger-Delta community, Oloibiri, which is credited as the country’s first point of commercial crude-oil discovery in January 1956. Two decades plus after the last drops of commercial quantity crude oil was drilled from Oloibiri, the town has two of its sons (each one disenchanted with the exploitation of their resources by the oil companies), pitched against each other in this action-thriller after a new discovery of crude oil is made by an American company. Oloibiri was directed by Curtis Graham
