Director Statement

The Honorable is a short film written by a powerfully emerging writer BABS MATHEW. The story and screenplay is quite very captivating and promising in addressing political thuggery as a worrisome situation which is pioneered by our political leaders in a bid to maintain their political position. I found the idea very interesting as it point of focal is on an issue that is timely and with this short film, i want to believe that the Nigerian youths will man-up and shun any form of engagement with thuggery for the politicians.
