VIDEO: Big Daddy > African Digital Art

  • March 28th, 2013


Not for the fainthearted, Big Daddy is a short film written and directed by Chris Ihidero and produced by Amaka Igwe. The film is about rape and sexual abuse in Nigeria addressing the frightening statistic that 20% of Nigerian women experience emotional, physical and sexual violence

We decided to make a film on rape because we believe that, for our society to truly combat this abnormality, we need to lay our collective shame bare. We need to strip off the layers upon layers of coverings that hide the realities of rape and sexual abuse. We believe that we all need to come clean and accept the blame for whatever part we have played, consciously or not, in ensuring that rape victims continue to lack support and justice, and lives continue to get ruined. We fear that unless we collectively do something quickly, anarchy may be loosed upon us all in the very near future” – Chris Ihidero
