Jude Idada’s debut feature KOFA will premiere at AFRIFF 2022

Nigerian Literature Prize winner and award-winning filmmaker -Jude Idada, is set to premiere his feature film “Kofa” at the 11th African International Film Festival (AFRIFF), which will be held at the Landmark Events Centre, Oniru, Lagos from November 6 to 11, 2022.

Kofa is a psychological thriller about eight people who wake up in their underwear, only to find themselves locked in a room. All they remember are their names. As a gunman enters to spot them, one after another they struggle to remember who they are, where they are, and why they are there in order to come up with an escape plan.

Speaking about the film, Jude Idada explains: “Kofa is a cinematic tour de force. The word “Kofa” means “door” in Hausa. Thus, the film is a metaphor for the closed doors we repeatedly encounter in our lives and the lengths we take to open them even when the odds are against us. It uses semi-nudity, gun violence, amnesia, entrapment, suspicion, intrigue, death, and a racing clock, which rises to a shocking twist and explosive climax.

Kofa features a star cast of Daniel Etim Effiong, Kate Henshaw, Ijeoma Grace Agu, Beverly Naya, Zainab Balogun, Enyinna Nwigwe, Shawn Faqua, Charles Etubiebi, Gina Castel, Udoka Oyeka, Buchi Franklin, Lucy Ameh, Carol King, Afeez Oyetoro, Achalugo Chioma Ilozumba, Paul Utomi, Femi Olayiwole, Folu Ogunkoya, Kiki Omelli, Wale Ojo, Eucharia Okoye and Kola “Aderopoko” Olaiya.

A production of Thinking Man Media in association with Creoternity Films and C-Blunt Films, it was written, directed and produced by Jude Idada alongside a production team of Chibuzo Okoye and Femi Ogunsanwo. It was filmed by Kagho Idhebor, edited by Kazeem Idris, with captivating score composition by Ava Momoh and sound mixed and engineered by George Flores. Filmmaker -Steve Sodiya was the production consultant alongside an award-winning team.
