A new Nollywood short film, “Stupid Finder”, has premiered on the YouTube platform on Friday, attracting high volumes in viewership. The short film was directed by Dotun Ololade and Sylvester Ahonsi and written by Hope Matthew.
The film also included new talents such as Eric Nwanso, who produced the film, Lawrence Iweriebor, Imoh Eboh and Stephanie Ugbeye.
“Stupid Finder” is set around various rural communities and areas in Lagos, Nigeria.
The film is about two brothers who make a living from stealing and selling tech on the black market. However, when one of the brothers decides to make better choices, it causes friction between them.
Dotun Ololade, co-director of the film, said, “When we created Stupid Finder, our purpose was to use the art of storytelling to engage the Nigerian public on complex social issues in a relatable way.”
“As storytellers, we have always tried to show the lives and challenges of the lower social class in Nigeria, and Stupid Finder puts a unique narrative around social issues,” added Eric Nwanso, the producer.
He further stated that the film is relevant and timely as it tackles how some Nigerians live and their chances of creating a different life.
