    Fast rising filmmaker, Felix Olojede is set to take his recently released movie, ‘Drowning Fish’ for screening across the country.
    While one will expect the film to be shown at cinemas and theaters, Olojede however has a different plan as he intends showing ‘Drowning Fish’ at local bars, joints and other places where alcohol consumption is at its peak.
    Speaking with NET at a special media screening during the week, Felix Olojede disclosed that his resolve at the screening venues was to ensure that the message reaches those it is targeted at.
    ‘We will be showing Drowning Fish at bars, joints and other handouts because these are the places where our target audiences are,’ Felix said.
    Drowning Fish, which focuses on the ills and effects of alcoholism, is a 24-minute short thriller about a photographer whose career and existence is threatened by his love for booze.
    ‘We made this movie to pass a message across because it is quite sad that a lot of people think alcoholism is a mild case which is lesser to hard drugs, domestic violence and other ills but the truth is that alcohol kills more people annually than all these others joined together,’ he said further.
    The short film, according to the director, will also be available for streaming online soon. …Read More
