Austine Lordlaz’s “The Last of Us” details the ordeal of Abused Street Kids | WATCH



Austine Lordlaz‘s “The Last of Us” clinched an award for the best short film category at the just-concluded Uyo International Theatre and Film Festival 2019, held at the Tropicana the Silverbird Cinema, Uyo, on November 7.

“The Last of Us” details the ordeal of abused street children, whose parents, aided by religious bodies, often tag witches and sent out into the streets. As created by the director, a group of abused and harassed street children fought societal odd to stay alive.

The film producer and director, Austine Lordlaz, notes that he makes films that impact humanity, film for development and in “The Last Of Us,” he creatively tells a true-life story from the perspective of the affected subjects who before now are often referred to as criminals, witches/wizards, possessed and never do wells.

The film is also up for many other nominations, amongst which is the Governor Benedict Ayade’s Film Competition, geared toward improving the creative economy in Cross River State and Nigeria at large.

    As I watched this film I couldn’t help but remember the poem “they too are the earth” the storyline was so we’ll composed and the long scenes of montage helped interact the message psychologically. I’m proud of you Austin lordlaz for this Master piece. I’m woke?

    Yet again, Austin tells a story, projecting the plight of children. Earlier, it was HOME – a short film on child neglect. Now, THE LAST OF US has a stronger message on the need for each of us to be human. These are kids, victims of child neglect, etc. – made far less humans by the society! And they are very vulnerable…

    Let’s join hands with Austin to change the society for good, at least to save “the last of the them” for humanity sake!

    I am proud of you, Austin! Weldon??

    The Last of Us by Austin Lordlaz is a graphic and true reflection of the Akwa-Cross dilemma facing street children otherwise known as Operation Skolombo- a situation where children are haplessly abandoned on the suspicion of witchcraft possession etc. Lordlaz has done a theatrically fantastic job in this movie. I recommend it to every home in Akwa Ibom and Cross River State. Well done Austin!
