Up and coming filmmaker Faraday Okoro is no stranger for talking about subjects no one is addressing In Nigeria; With his debut movie ‘Nigerian Prince’ which addressed email and Internet fraud.
His first feature film ‘Nigerian Prince’ was executive produced by Oscar winner, Spike Lee, and was the inaugural winner of the Tribeca Film Institute and At&T’s Untold Stories competition. The movie also earned him a place on Moviemaker Magazine’s ’25 To Watch list.
In his new movie, ‘Prelude to a Crime’, the rising filmmaker is tackling the social injustice of police brutality.
The movie is a legal drama set within a jury panel as they deliberate with the confounding facts and implications of the explosive case before them: a police officer on trial for the shooting of an unarmed black man.
Okoro will direct the movie, in collaboration with Andrew Lauren Productions (ALP), he says:
“I’m excited to team with Andrew Lauren Productions on this film. Like myself, they’re passionate about telling relevant, thought-provoking stories.
I’ve always wondered what happens behind-the-scenes in court cases like these, and exploring the problems facing our criminal justice system is more important than ever.”Faraday Okoro
