Entitled EFF’D (Blighted Dreams in Shades of Magenta), the short film produced by Oluwatobi Aworinde follows Ore, who “armed with nothing but guts and cruel intentions, sets off for a late-night romp at the secret apartment of the powerful Lagos politician Kola Roberts.
“As the night wears on, Ore’s refusal to heed her best friend’s warning leads to a horrific turn of events that forces her to come to terms with the woman she has become.”
Speaking about the movie, director Lawani Akinyemi shared; “EFF’D was born out of the need to do more than just observe a social evil, in this case, sexual violence and predatory behavior.
“This has been a long-running conversation that doesn’t seem to get much attention other than the initial rumour.
“The short film follows a realistic angle of this issue and how it plays out mostly in real life, especially when there is an obvious game/imbalance of power and disparity in social class as well as age.
EFF’D stars Sambasa Nzeribe, Nimi Adekanmbi, and Osas Okonyon with Chinedu Obuekwe and Lawani Akinyemi credited as writers.
