I am a bit of a restless spirit so I am constantly seeking newer and hopefully more compelling ways to tell stories. Don’t ask me if it works every time but i suppose that remains to be decided. So here comes another moment filled with excitement, trepidation and fright.
For sometime now, I have been working on an experimental series of sorts called Room 313. I had always wondered, if Nigerians got a chance to speak with a therapist about a problem or an issue they were dealing with, what would they say? You know it is almost engrained in our DNA to be strong people and i have often felt that a lot of us are a walking and ticking PTSD(post traumatic stress disorder) time bomb just waiting to explode. With this series i’m hoping to not only tell those stories but explore how characters cope and deal with them. The stories in Room 313 are old in short vignettes. And if you are wondering how i came about the name, it is in honour of my best friend’s father who passed away on the third of december 2013 a few days after her wedding.
In episode one, we meet Dilim and follow him on his own cathartic journey. My friend and collaborator from my short film ‘Shrink’ Imoh Umoren is executive producer on this project and actor Harry Dorgu plays Dilim. By the way I make a voice cameo. Please do enjoy watching, leave your comments and share with others as well. Happy viewing
