The Initiative for Equal Rights (TIERs) in partnership with Asurf Films Limited have released the trailer for the highly anticipated short film Hell or High Water, starring Enyinna Nwigwe, Daniel K. Daniel (AMVCA winner), Ashionye Michelle Racah, Tunbosun Aiyedehin, and Adedayo Davies.
Directed by the award-winning filmmaker, Asurf Oluseyi, the short film is themed around the traumatic experiences arising from socially constructed expectations imposed on persons with different sexual orientations. The short film humanizes the discussion on sexual orientation and gender identity through everyday realities in the Nigerian society where heteronormative expectations are the norm. This is important for educational and information purposes.
