Fresh from his success with his first from the trio of his films for Africa Magic, Nollywood filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan is set to premiere the second film, ROTI.
The psychological thriller featuring Kate Henshaw, Faithia Balogun, Toyin Oshinaike, Dari Afolayan and Kunle Afolayan is being screened with collaboration from the Lagos State Government as part of activities to celebrate Lagos @ 50.
Years after a couple loses their son called ROTI to a brief illness, the wife sees a boy called Juwon who is an exact replica of her dead son. She initially receives the experience in wonder and hope of a reunited future with her dead son. But, after she discovers roughly that Juwon is entirely not her dead son, she is washed anew by grief, depression and desperation. Her desperation spirals for the worst as her decision-making on her future with Juwon becomes rather irrational and reckless.
The screening will hold on Friday, May 5, 2017, at Filmhouse, IMAX Cinema, Lekki.
