For the director of Light in the Dark, Ekene Som Mekwunye, what inspired the film was the sad story he heard on radio a couple of years ago.
“One day, I was listening to a show on radio when I heard the story of a woman who was experiencing very terrible time in her relationship because she was a victim of domestic violence. Light in the Dark is the inspirational story of that lady who is finding light in the dark. It is all about how to overcome. A lot of women are living with it because of the culture of silence we practice,” he said.
Light In The Dark is the story of a couple, who despite the advice of their parents not to marry each other, allow love to prevail. Emeka and Jumoke have a nine-year-old daughter whom they love dearly. However, a gang of robbers attacks the family and the leader decides to abuse Jumoke who ends up pregnant.
It stars Rita Dominic, Joke Silva, Kalu Ikeagwu, Ngozi Nwosu, Kiki Omeili and Mannie of Cool FM among others. Commenting on branding opportunities for the film, brand specialist, Charles O’Tudor said that films have become a very powerful tool in today’s world.
