Once again, The Bodies film franchise continues to carve a niche for itself as a project that will entertain and stir vigorous debate on human trafficking and illegal organ harvesting. As part of the European Union Anti-Trafficking day the A-TIPSOM film exhibition implemented by FIIAPP held at the Silverbird Cinema Lagos 8th october & Abuja 16th October, THE BODIES Film by Nelson Bright was selected along with Debt of Death by Azubuike Erinugha and After Thought by Jonah Ino Moses for screening from a pool of 461 entries from 71 countries for their unique insight on the malaise of human trafficking.
A-TIPSOM (Action Against Trafficking in Persons and Smuggling of Migrants in Nigeria) recognized the film written by Abinye Bristol and directed by Nelson Bright with an award on October 16th 2021 The award was presented to the movie director by Rafael Rios Molina the European Union Representative in Nigeria / A-TIPSOM team leader
A move that both validates its timely themes as well as serving as a further motivation to a team that hardly needs any.
In an interview Nelson Bright the Award wining Director stated Our team has been pushing since 2018, I’m happy we have managed to spark a conversation around Local / International Anti-Human trafficking Agencies, about the dangers of social media, using film as medium for sensitisation.
I hope we get more strategic partnerships, and funding to make the full Movie, We believe 95% of anti trafficking investment should be on preventing the crime from even happening through entertaining Education With pre-production on the feature film already underway and production due to begin shortly after, a 2022 release date for The Bodies feature film has been set, with further collaborations with relevant agencies such as NAPTIP, NACTAL, The Nigerian Police, UN and the EU are cemented with a view to making the project the pick of the bunch in 2022. Boasting a stellar cast and crew, THE BODIES feature film is definitely one to watch out for in 2022.
