Hakkunde, directed by the multi-award winning Oluseyi Asurf (Hell or High Water, A Day With Death), has been selected to screen at the 15th anniversary of the Festival International du Film Pan-Africain (FIFP). Hakkunde is known for winning last year at the IndieFEST Film Awards, Africa International Film Festival Globe Awards, European Cinematography Awards, Five Continents International Film Festival, and the Dodowa International Film Festival.
Founded in 2004, the Cannes International Pan African Film Festival (or FIFP) is a platform for promoting cinema, the film industry, culture and the arts. This year’s event will hold from the 18th – 22nd of April and films conferred with the Dikalo Award will go on to enjoy international acclaim. The festival is also a dynamic economical hub celebrating Pan African entrepreneurism, i.e. fashion, hairstyling, music and creative innovations.
Written by Asurf, Tomi Adesina and Gift Imafidon, Hakkunde follows the struggle of a Nigerian graduate who battles everything on his journey to self discovery and actualization. It’s a story highlighting the merits of steadfastness, humility and self denial. The film also espouses the gains of harnessing opportunities and lays bare the demerits of pride, greed and inconsistency. Hakkunde stars Frank Donga, Rahama Sadau, Toyin Abraham and a host of others.
