Inspiration and hope are best descriptions of the atmosphere that saw the screening of “Silver Lining,” the much anticipated short film on Autism, held at the Ventures Koral Reef, Ikoyi Lagos on Sunday, May 27, 2012.

The well attended event kicked off with a red carpet session and saw some of the brightest Nollywood stars and socialites including Desmond Elliot, Ini Edo, Omoni Oboli, Susan Peters and renowned producer Emem Isong attend in their trendy ensembles.

Treated to a special evening of fun, laughter, tears and hope, the crowded audience was taken by surprise at Monalisa Chinda’s effortless interpretation of an emotionally frustrated mother in the heartrending film which also features Whoba Ogo and Obiora Olife as father and child, respectively.

“The film seeks to hearten parents with special children while educating the society at large about the Autism spectrum. It’s a cause that is very close to my heart, and I plan to do more of such projects,” Monalisa responded when asked why she took part in the film.

Expressing her gratitude at the end of the event, Mrs. Dotun Akande, Executive Producer of Silver Lining and Founder of Patrick Speech & Languages Centre said she was very grateful for the support showered on her by everyone in the industry. “Autism is not a death sentence! With early diagnosis, intervention and therapy, your child can recover without a trace,” she concluded.
