Its screening is to hold at the MCC Theater in a collaboration between the African Film Festival and MCC Theater.

This first-of-its-kind event precedes global streaming of the film between November 25 and 28.

Speaking about the film, which recently got four Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) nominations, Okwo said: “As a filmmaker, I am drawn to telling stories that capture the essence of my observations.

“With this project, I had the opportunity to present a classic noir tale with a distinctively African twist; one that speaks for the times as it chronicles the journey of a young middle-class man who is a product of today’s Nigeria.”
