‘A Song From The Dark’: Ogo Okpue unveils trailer of much-anticipated horror film, starring Nse Ikpe Etim, Wale Ojo | classiqdjfaze.com

Okpue, whose short films like ‘Saving Cain’ and ‘Cat Face’ have been recognized and screened at major film festivals around the world, says the film draws a lot of inspiration from the stories he heard as a child whenever he visited the village with his parents.

The UK-based award winning multidisciplinary designer and creative director, who currently splits his time producing film based contents and working for top media and leading corporate brands in the UK and USA offering his expertise in branding, creative development and strategy, motion graphics, design/creative direction and 3D animation.

Speaking on the movie Okpue says:

“The inspiration of the story dates back to a certain period of my childhood when my family would visit my grandmother in our village. She happened to be a well-respected traditionalist. Tales of her would intrigue us and as I grew older, I regretted not knowing her more. She was an enigma and I wondered what it would have been like if some of her tales were captured in books. The world of African mysticism has not been explored enough in world cinema. And most times it is vilified. America has Superman and Ironman, the United Kingdom has James Bond and Harry Potter. Japan and China have Flying Swordsmen and mystical Ninjas, India has Tonnes.”

Okpue believes Nigeria has its distinct stories that needs to be told for the world to see. “What do we have? I think in Africa, our superheroes have slept long enough, African stories are as diverse and as entertaining as the continent itself, so I thought ‘why not add more African heroes to the fictional world of cinema?”

‘A Song From The Dark’ is unlike any film seen in the black cinematic landscape. Some call it ‘Lovecraft country meets Buffy the vampire slayer but with a Nigerian spin’. With striking visuals, suspense-filled scenes and engaging performances, ‘A Song from the Dark’ is not your typical horror film. If anything it embraces suspense and drama like the great horror classics so there is something in the story for non-horror fans as well. At the heart of it, it is a family drama and a cautionary tale with poignant social commentary. It’s confident blend of drama and multilayered subtexts will leave viewers reaching for repeat viewing and days long post credit conversations.

Slated for release in 2023, ‘A Song From The Dark’ got AMAA nominations in categories such as: Best Actress in a Leading Role, Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Award for First Feature by a Director, Michael Anyiam Osigwe Award for Best Film by an African-born Director Living Abroad and Award for Best Achievement in Make-Up.
