The film tells the tale of a father and daughter's love and the sour turn their relationship takes when they become a stumbling block to each other’s happiness.
British/Nigerian director Michelle Bello is set to return behind the cameras to direct her latest film project called ‘And the Spirit Slowly Dies’. The 40 minutes planned family drama is written and produced by United Kingdom (UK) based writer/producer Dapo Oshiyemi.
The synopsis of the film is as follows:
“The film tells the story of the only daughter of one of the richest and most powerful men in the country. Both father and daughter love and admire each other dearly but when their dreams clash, they embark upon a monumental psychological, emotional and physical battle as they become the biggest obstacle to each other’s happiness”.
The movie with robust elements of suspense is expected to be recorded in the second half of 2015. It will feature and involve leading talent and production crew from Nigeria, South Africa, the United States of America and UK.
Michelle said: “I’m really excited, I never thought my next project would be a short film but when Dapo sent me the script, I was hooked! It is a fantastic script with great characters and I can't wait to start working with the world-class team we're putting together. I'm thrilled about what we are about to do with this film and for the world to see it."
Michelle Bello directed award winning films ‘Small Boy’ (2007) and Flower Girl (2013) starring Damilola Adegbite and her husband Chris Attoh.
