Deranged-a Short Film



Writer: Lawrence Leokritz Chukwu
Director: Lawrence Leokritz Chukwu
Starring: Nwamadi Kings, Abigail Ocheibi, Kingsley Odigiri


A mother must choose between commitment and freedom when push comes to shove and lives are put at risk in the hands of one who is familiar.

TME had an exclusive talk with writer director Lawrence Chukwu about the story behind the film.


“I wanted to make a short film that puts a positive message out there. Everyday, we hear stories highlighting women from abusive relationships. Sometimes these issues are suger coated or not even told at all, so that we don’t know how serious it is. I wanted to do something highlighting the domestic violence issues by representing it in a way that starts small and can explode into a life-threatening problem. It’s when we see small things, small changes and not deal with them appropriately that we let them grow and in return, the problem is bigger not only for us, but it hurts and  affecting others.”

The movie is currently in post and will be out later this year.
