Now, we cannot wait for this!
Written, directed and produced by Uche Aguh, I Still Do serves as his directorial debut. The dramatic short film stars Chinwe A Nwokolo and Aguh in lead roles.
Set in Lagos, Nigeria, the short film follows a young Nigerian politician named Emeka (Aguh) and his wife, Chioma (Nwokolo), in the midst of a political election. Chioma is in her mid thirties, a beautiful woman. Everything about her is pageant-like. But through the dark lens of her eyes, a much different story exists. Emeka, also in his mid thirties, a man full of charisma and charm, poised to be a governor. A miraculous feat, given his age and income. Their marriage in apparent crisis, the couple can no longer hold on to elegant pretense. In this particular style and theme, I still do is inspired by European French, art-house cinema.
Aguh is joined behind the camera by cinematographer, Dennis Schmitz, who made use of small LED lights and modified natural lighting to achieve a picture that is both magnificient and terrifyingly beautiful. The film was shot in Düsseldorf, Germany.
