Filled with passion for the arts and movies, award winning filmmaker,Doyin Amodu has gone the extra mile to go bald in order to tell the story of cancer patients.
Her latest production,Imagination, explores “the effects of cancer in the lives of people and how we can all fight this life altering diseases.”
”According to the producer who is currently studying London Southbank University UK, the theme of the movie is timely because cancer has become a worrisome sickness globally.
“Since it is a terminal sickness, the victims need to be encouraged and not stigmatized. For those reasons, Imagination is produced and dedicated to all victims of cancer worldwide. I shaved my hair as a reaction from one of the cancer treatment called chemotherapy.
In filmmaking,there should be believability in the interpretation of script. And in order to make that particular plot line a reality, I must shave my hair so that the audience can empathize with the character and also to encourage other cancer victims going through such, to know they are not alone,” she stated.
With its high budget, Imaginationis a movie that will resonate with the audience as it also parades great casts like Jide Kosoko, Rykardo Agbor, FemiAdebayo, Toyin Moore, Funmi OgidanBello,Madra Ezie, Rotimi Aberuagba,Abike Omolola Olagoke and the actress producer,Doyin Amodu.
Speaking on her choice of the theme,she added, “As a filmmaker, I am only interested in any topical issue that is negatively affecting my society.
This was evident in my last film titled ‘Omoye My Son’ where I treated post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), where a father lost his son to the cold hands of death.” Amodu is a filmmaker who has been in the industry for more than 23 years. She produced her first movie , Oja Okunkun as a fresh graduate.
