Now this looks promising! 37thSTATE has released a teaser trailer for “NKIRU“. 37thSTATE is a new film studio headed by filmmaker, Bolaji Kekere-Ekun. NKIRU is the first in a trilogy of groundbreaking short films the studio plans to release in 2011.
The story of NKIRU centers around a group of friends who go to the beach and disappear under mysterious circumstances. With stellar performances from all of its fresh up-and-coming cast, this supernatural thriller takes a modern look at a familiar myth in Nigerian and African society.
The ‘supernatural’ genre is one that is explored quite often in Nigerian movies, however, it is usually from the same point of view. It is refreshing to see a younger, more modern take on this. Check out the teaser trailer below. The movie is produced by Nkechi Bakare.
The film is slated for release in the first quarter of 2011.
