David Ohikhuare walks in his father's footsteps and directs his first short film featuring a cast made up of his family members.
The nine-year-old filmmaker is already making waves as he recently won the award for Best Movie by a Kid at the Realtime International Film Festival held in Lagos in September, 2016.
“Dear John” directed by the young Ohikhuare starts off with a young boy, Duval writing a letter to his friend and brother named John. The letter is read aloud as he puts his pen to paper and recounts the events that occur when he was a toddler and a scorpion snuck into his home.
The short film produced by his father features a cast made up of his family including the film director, his father, and his siblings: Daniel Ohikhuare, Stephanie Ohikhuare and Stacy Ohikhuare.
