Rising filmmaker, Faraday Okoro, is no stranger to tackling controversial topics with his movies. His debut feature, Nigerian Prince, was an uncomfortable-yet-needed exploration of email and internet fraud — a phenomenon that Nigeria has come to be associated with.

Nigerian Prince was executive produced by Oscar winner, Spike Lee, and was the inaugural winner of the Tribeca Film Institute and At&T’s Untold Stories competition, which came with a $1 million grant. The movie also earned him a place on Moviemaker Magazine’s ’25 To Watch’ list.

His next movie, Prelude to a Crime, tackles police brutality. Prelude to a Crime is a legal drama set within a jury deliberation as they wrestle with the confounding facts and implications of the explosive case in front of them: a police officer on trial for the shooting of an unarmed black man. 

Okoro will be directing the movie, in collaboration with Andrew Lauren Productions (ALP), he says:

“I’m excited to team with Andrew Lauren Productions on this film. Like myself, they’re passionate about telling relevant, thought-provoking stories.

I’ve always wondered what happens behind-the-scenes in court cases like these, and exploring the problems facing our criminal justice system is more important than ever.”

We cannot wait to see what he does with this movie!

Tech and politics. Is there even a difference between the two?
