Set between the late 1800 and early 1900 the movie follows the life of the enigmatic Nigeran Nationalist, Herbert Macaulay who was one of the advocates for freedom. The story is based on true events and focuses more on the personal life of the rebel, which has not often been well-documented over time. One of Herbert’s grandchildren is a producer on the project to ensure historical accuracy.
Engaged and produced by Rucksack Productionz, the movie has seen its first teaser for the historical drama ‘The Herbert Macaulay Affair‘, the latest offering from indie film director Imoh Umoren who has been on a roll this year. The blockbuster period piece is the Children of Mud’s director fourth feature in 2019, following Dear Bayo, The Coffin Salesman, and Lagos: Sex, Lies, and Traffic.
