Kene Mekwunye's new flick stars Adekola Odunlade, Rita Dominic, Joke Silva, others

African Magic Viewer’s Choice Award winner, Ekene Me­kwunye, is set to embark on a new film project entitled Light in the Dark. The movie which is themed on Domestic Violence will feature some top ranking, award winning actors among them include veteran actress­es Joke Silva, multiple award winning actress, Rita Dominic, Ngozi Nwosu, Kiki Omeli, Kalu Ikeagwu, popu­lar Yoruba actor Adekola Odunlade among other talented actors. Also starring in the flick is popular On Air Personality, Manny of Cool Fm.
Unveiled amid pomp and pag­eantry on Wednesday 29 at the West­wood Hotel, Ikoyi Lagos, the event had most of the stars of the movie in attendance, stakeholders, as well as the press.
Ekene who cut his filmmaking teeth with the late Amaka Igwe and also studied in Hollywood, enthused that he’s passionate about the new film Light in the Dark and that al­ready, it has taken everything from him despite that he’s yet to start film­ing. “Light in the Dark is a story that I wrote and I got Babatunde Ojo to write the screenplay. It’s about a loving couple, but all of a sudden something happens and the couple falls apart. And it’s a thriller. You don’t really get to see what’s coming. The movie deals with domestic violence and what stands it out is how it portrays it. We are show­ing you through the eye of a victim. What that person is going through and how that person lives through the trauma to pick her life back. One of the things we are trying to say is, there are so many things that happen to women and a lot of it affects them psychologi­cally, they hardly get out of it but we are saying, you can get out of it and pick your life back. You can find light in that darkness.”
