Cross River born film producer, Frank Akpeke, has said that his next movie titled ‘Ghetto Justice’ seeks to address the issues of gender based violence in homes and communities with the hopes of ensuring that there is enough support to put an end to it.

Akpeke, who doubled also as executive producer in the movie said the inspiration for the movie came from the constant pains and troubles women go through daily in the society especially as they are now viewed as objects of sexuality and battery.

“I am hoping that this movie unites both men and women to take a stand and say no to the abuse and sexual harassment of women. In the movie, the abuse was organized on a community level and the women in the society had to rise up to put a stop to it,” Akpeke said.

Mr. Akpeke added that gender-based violence has become an accepted norm in our society and the movie is a call to action for both those in authority, individuals, victims to take “the necessary action to end this menace.”

The film was produced by Mountain Cinema Nigeria; a movie production company which seeks to promote cultural values.

The film tells the story of Benita who returns from Lagos to Obodo, a fictional community only to find the community in chaos, her mother murdered and elders neglecting their duties and young men molesting and abusing women and girls the way they want.

Benita rallies other girls to form a group that acts like a counterforce, dispensing “Ghetto Justice” on the preys that have taken over Obodo.

The movie which is expected to be out by the first week of March cast Shan George, Benita Ogar among other actors.
