Title: The Antique
Director: Darasen Richards and DJ Tee
The antique holds the key to life for the ailing Oba’s son but it’s been forty years since it was forcefully taken away from Godo kingdom. Ukinebo has been chosen to retrieve the sacred pot. It is upon this premise we experience the Bini culture from the clothes to the customs. The movie has the makings of an epic as Ukinebo battles physical and spiritual forces on her mission. Towards the end, the plot loses steam as we are transported back to modern day Lagos where the antique is part of a showcase and a heist is forced upon us.
