After getting 10 nominations in the Kalasha Film and Television Awards 2014 for their sex comedy “House of Lungula”, HISTORIA FILMS have more exciting news for their fans!
Seven months after the successful premiere of “House of Lungula” they are bringing you, in co-production with Native Productions, a new movie! In particular a crazy sex comedy called “Fundi-Mentals”!
Joseph (Gerald Langiri) and his assistant Moses (Charlie Karumi) like to think of themselves as the Best Fundis in Kinoo, despite their unorthodox methods. But the entry of a new Multinational Service Company in town throws all this in jeopardy. To avoid going out of business, they introduce to their female customers a new type of sex-press service with hilarious results!
Gerald Langiri, Charlie Karumi, Florence Nduta, Lizz Njagah, Kalekye Mumo, Neomi Ng’ang’a, Veronica Waceke, Ruth Maingi, Milkah Ndegwa and Ojiambo Ainea.
Written/Directed: Alexandros Konstantaras
Director of Photography: John Wambugu
The movie is on the postproduction stage and aims to premier end of this year. If you thought that “House of Lungula” was hilarious then “Fundi-Mentals” will blow your mind!
HOUSE OF LUNGULA, will be exclusively available at www.buni.tv/lungula from May 4, 2014.
HOUSE OF LUNGULA caused a stir when it was released in cinemas last February to packed audiences in Nairobi and Mombasa. The local blockbuster, which stars Ian Mbugua, Lizz Njagah, Gerald Langiri and Sarah Hassan and is directed by Alexandros Konstantaras, is a sexy, laugh-out-loud comedy in the vein of big Hollywood hits like THE HANGOVER or AMERICAN PIE – and a first of its kind in Kenya.
But the limited theater run and great word-of-mouth left a lot more Kenyans – especially in the diaspora – eager to see the movie. From May 4, viewers worldwide will finally be able to satisfy their curiosity!
With HOUSE OF LUNGULA, Buni.tv will be piloting a pay-per-view option for new movie releases, in addition to its usual subscription model. For 150ksh ($3.99 for the diaspora), users will be able to rent the film and watch it at their convenience during a 3-day period, and without having to subscribe to Buni.tv’s monthly premium service Buni+. After the initial exclusive release period of a couple weeks, the film will become available to Buni+ subscribers at no extra cost to them.
“We have been overwhelmed by the amount of people outside Kenya requesting to watch HOUSE OF LUNGULA,” said director Alex Konstantaras. “Buni.tv created the avenue that we were looking for in order to reach those people around the world.”
