Think about Macbeth, in the Naija way, and you’ve got “In Iredu”, a short film produced and directed by Abiola Sobo. Of course literature lovers and enthusiasts all know what happened in William Shakespeare’s acclaimed Macbeth…and more importantly about the three witches and the prophecy they foretold.
Abiola Sobo, deploys the concept of film adaptation to tell the story of “Macbeth” from an African perspective with Ogagun, the great General from the western region of Africa, stumbling upon three witches in Iredu who unveil his future to him.
The likes of Ijeoma Grace Agu, Deyemi Okanlawon, Adenike Ogunsanwo, and Lala Akindoju did justice to their characters. In Iredu, made the short list of the second edition of the Afrinolly Short Film Festival.
Hmm…can’t wait to watch it…what do you think?
