The premiere of the movie, Living Funeral was held on Sunday October 27 2013 at Wheatbaker Hotel in Ikoyi, Lagos. Living Funeral is from the stable of Pink Pearl Foundation, an NGO founded by Orode Ryan-Okpu to raise awareness on breast and cervical cancer.
 “Living Funeral” is a heart touching film full of love, passion and breathtaking emotional moments.

The VVIP pink carpet event was a special presentation of Pink Pearl Foundation’s grand gesture to showcase its effort to further promote the knowledge of breast and cervical cancer as well as its dedication to empowering women.
The short film executively produced by the CEO of Pink Pearl Foundation, Orode Ryan-Okpu captures the life of a cancer patient – the detection, the challenges and survival through the experience with family and friends.

 Living Funeral demonstrates how to survive as a cancer patient and how to support someone living with it; it also reveals that not enough money can keep a victim alive like the compassion from family and companions.
Celebrating the annual October Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the 20-minute film was a special presentation available to an exclusive audience. An additional campaign advert featuring celebrities such as Jay Jay Okocha, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Mo cheddah and many more was also shown.

Living Funeral features veteran Nollywood actors such as Liz Ameye (former Benson) and Nobert Young. The lead role was played by Stephanie Wilson. The movie was directed by Udoka Oyeka who co-wrote the story with Akpor Kagho while the original soundtrack was rendered by BFFs Omawumi and Waje.
