My Scripts rated a "Recommend"
"Phate" - Character Driven | Thriller | Strong Female Lead

"Phate is a unique thriller set in Ebola-stricken Nigeria, established through a local lens. It proves marketable in a globalized world, to a globalized audience seeking alternative renditions of the worn-out genre. Furthermore, it establishes a female protagonist in a powerful role without the burden of objectification."

Unique traits: I'm a visual writer.

Loglines

  • Phate

    Phate Thriller A troubled child psychologist falsely accused of murder must run from the law while trying to find the only person who can prove her innocence – a young boy stricken with the Ebola virus. "Phate is a unique thriller set in Ebola-stricken Nigeria, established through a local lens. It proves marketable in a globalized world, to a globalized audience seeking alternative renditions of the worn-out genre. Furthermore, it establishes a female protagonist in a powerful role without the burden of objectification. This film is progressive in its socio-political stance and provides a glimpse into the world of local Nigerians – breaking any western-biases about non-North-American ways of life. Phate is a fast-paced, action-packed story reminiscent of various staple films within the genre. It fits convention without losing uniqueness and distinctive undertones. A story of this caliber fares well within the independent sector."
