My Father’s Son

[quote title=””]Synopsis: Kunle Olajide is an unemployed graduate who finally finds a way out of his predicament: a job in the police. Kunle. Whose world has been black and white so far, is thus pitched into a vast, new world of grey where he must make difficult choices that pit him against the things he cherishes the most: his personal convictions, family and all-round security.[/quote]

Screenwriter : Kayode Faniyi

Kayode-FaniyiBio: After four years surviving the Microbiology course at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Kayode Faniyi has found some redemption creating all kinds of media content (from TV game shows to good old brochures) and is currently an Associate Editor at a media firm in Lagos. In his spare time, he is a reader and writer of poems, short stories, socio-cultural and literary commentary. Film of course is the natural progression from these and Cinema4Change provided a balance of opportunity and tools.

Social Issues: What drives people to do what they do and through what mechanisms can these very same forces bring about change? I found this paradox immensely useful in exploring corruption, and with film, as with all art, one can say what one isn’t saying, to push for positive results.
