Gbese, a short film by filmmaker, Adesola Oni is set to screen at the 2023 edition of the Indieview Film & Food Festival later this month.

The short film tells the story of three lawless police officers who pull over a mysterious man at night for a traffic violation. What soon follows is classic reversal of roles as the ‘hunter’, a bribe-seeking police officer soon becomes the ‘hunted’ when he finds himself at the mercy of a serial killer who hates corrupt cops.

Written and directed by Adesola Oni, the film stars Casey Edema, Jude Orhorha, Promise Agbor, and Toyosi Benjamin.

Commenting on Gbese’s inclusion in the film festival Kolapo Oladapo, Lead Convener of Cocoa House said, “We are actively tapping into youth culture by supporting creative communities such as Indieview to empower creators across Africa.”

The film first premiered at the S16 Film Festical (S16FF) in 2022 where it received positive reviews from critics and audiences. Movie and TV platform ‘What Kept Me Up’ described “it as a rekindling of the trauma of police brutality.”

Gbese will screen at the Indieview Film & Food Festival on January 22, 2023.
