Passing Wind (working title)
Pulse Fringe Festival
Written by Oladipo Agboluaje
Directed by Michael Buffong
An affectionate satire set in the vibrant world of the Nigerian film industry.
Arrogant thespians, a ginger-haired drunk, a vindictive producer of trashy films: Okafor has contended with and bested them all. He is on track to make the breakout Nollywood blockbuster; that is until everything falls apart on the last day of the shoot. Can he against all odds get his film back on track? Passing Wind is an affectionate satire set in the vibrant world of the prolific Nigerian film industry.
