Kunle Afolayan’s Mokalik, other titles now on Netflix
Notable filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan, has announced that the pay per view media giant, Netflix, has acquired his latest film, Mokalik, and some other titles he didn’t name.
Afolayan reportedly made the disclosure at the sidelines of the French-Nigerian Cinema Day held between July 2 and 3 at the Alliance Francaise, Ikoyi.
Shot in Lagos on Canon EOS C300 Mark II and with a range of Canon Cine lenses, Mokalik, an intriguing story of ambition and love and peep into happenstances in a typical Nigerian mechanic workshop, followed the career interest story of Ponmile, an 11-year-old-boy born to middle class parents.
With the consent of his father, Ponmile, who had expressed interest in trying his hand on a vocation, spends a day as an apprentice mechanic at a busy mechanic shop just so as to experience what life is outside school and as an artisan.
Day over and when his father shows up to take him back home, he has to decide if he wants to return to school or continue his apprenticeship fulltime.
The movie stars some notable Nollywood and Yoruba movie industry actors, such as Femi Adebayo; Charles Okocha; Fathia Williams; Wale Akorede, aka Okunu; Ayo Ogunshina, aka Papa Lolo; Dayo Akinpelu, aka Alabi Yellow; award-winning singer, Simisola Ogunleye and Lateef Oladimeji.
