Asurf Oluseyi won the 'best short film' award at the 2016 Africa Magic Viewers Choice award for "A Day with Death."
The filmmaker beat other nominees "Panic Button – Bongiwe Selane," "Yawa – Kassim Braimah," "Blood Taxi – Folasakin Iwajomo," and "A Cup of Sugar – Bongiwe Selane" to win the coveted price.
In the exclusive chat with Pulse, Oluseyi and Judith Audu who played Death in the film, spoke on inspiration behind "A Day with Death", challenges encountered while bringing the script to life, and their upcoming projects.
"A Day with Death" tells the story of a cantankerous sixty-five-year-old woman “Margaret” (Tuby Aiyedehin) who has a few things to do before she goes.
Asurf's upcoming projects include "Hell or High Water," a short film which explores the reality of sexuality amidst spirituality, exorcism, blackmail, and family life. Hell or High Water challenges stereotypical narratives about sexuality and spirituality.
Audu's upcoming projects include her first feature film "Just Not Married," which stars Stan Nze, Rotimi Salami, Ijeoma Agu, Obutu Roland, Brutus Richard, Gregory Ojefua, Judith Audu, Perpetua Adefemi, with special appearances by Adeniyi Johnson, Sambasa Nzeribe, Morten Foght, Bucci Franklin, Eric Nwanso, L.A.S.E, Seun Afolabi, among others.
