Director Biography - Anastasia Okeze

Anastasia originates from Delta State, Nigeria, and currently resides in the United Kingdom alongside her family. Anastasia holds a distinguished academic background, having successfully completed her studies in quantity survey, construction management, and mathematics education. Her expertise lies in the realm of interior design and window furnishings, with a particular focus on the United Kingdom market. From a tender age, she harboured aspirations of pursuing a career in the realm of music or acting. Despite being born to Nigerian parents, their primary goal was for her to receive an education and pursue a career in corporate organisations. Singing and acting, on the other hand, are not considered viable career paths but rather hobbies that you can engage in during your leisure time. Subsequently, Anastasia made the deliberate choice to actively participate in the theatrical productions organised by her church, thereby assuming a role within the esteemed ranks of the church choir and plays. Anastasia harboured unwavering aspirations of pursuing a career as both an actress and a singer. Despite lacking formal training and substantial experience in the film industry, she persevered for 35 years until she finally realised her long-awaited directorial movie debut and produced "GATEWAY." This poignant movie production delves into the authentic narratives surrounding the lives of undocumented immigrants residing in the United Kingdom.
