As the world marks World Autism Day today, April 2, 2016, BlueHouse Films and Phalanx Pictures have released the teaser video for the Tomi Adesina-directed short film about autism, The Other Me.
Written and directed by Tomi Adesina, The Other Me is a compelling short film on Autism which raises awareness on the condition and speaks against discriminating people living with it. It was produced by Tomi Adesina and Michael Tayo Babalola’s BlueHouse Films in association with Omobolaji Opakunbi’s Phalanx Pictures.
It tells the story of Olamide, an autistic young man prepares for the biggest day of his life; a date with the love of his life, Sharon. Due to his condition, what seemingly should be his most exciting day becomes a nightmare.
The short film stars Taiwo Adeboboye and Adebukola Oladipupo, among others.
As today, April 2nd, 2016 is World Autism Day, awareness would be raised by various people on Autism. BlueHouse Films and Phalanx Pictures would be doing same with this project.
The date for the official release of the short film is yet to be announced.
