BEYOND…Must Watch Hollywood Short Movie By Nigerian-Born Producer, Violetta Ekpe

beyond-1I woke up this morning to see this short film floating on my Facebook timeline. The friend who shared it said it was a 10 minute that would be worth every watcher’s while.

Curious to find out, I clicked the ‘Play’ button and my heart stopped every one minute from the suspense. It sure was worth my while.

When a rock fall traps his parents inside a burning car, a 7 year-old boy must find the hero within him in order to save their lives.

BEYOND is an epic adventure short about a family on a desert road trip. When a rock fall traps his parents inside a burning car, a 7 year-old boy must find the hero within him in order to save their lives…

This short brought back memories of the early Spielberg era of the 80s…Indiana Jones…The Goonies; adventure films full of childlike excitement with edge-of-your-seat action scenes.

And when the credits started to roll at the end, I discovered the Producer had a Nigerian name…Violetta Ekpe. Wow! I thought…Ekpe is a name of Cross River and Akwa Ibom origin.

A quick research shows Ekpe is an expert in short film production, with blockbuster shorts like ‘Deal Travis In’ (2013), Where Children Play (2015), ‘End of Mara’ (2016) and other movies.

I’m so proud of this young lady!!
