The Paradigm Initiative project encourages citizen’s understanding of digital rights protection.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
To mark the one-year anniversary of the EndSARS protests, Paradigm Initiative (PIN) has released a new short film called “Focus.” ‘Focus,’ directed by Tolulope Ajayi, created by Lois Truly and produced by Up In The Sky Films, is based on PIN’s LONDA annual digital inclusion report for 2020, and shows the tragic violent quelling of youth-led protests against police brutality.
Paradigm Initiative announced the new short film on Instagram, writing: “Storytelling is a powerful tool for advocacy and activism; everyone loves a good story so what better way to raise awareness than through an entertaining, engaging story that addresses key issues we are facing and gets us talking.”
Moshood Fattah, Genoveva Umeh, and Leo Oji star in ‘Focus,’ which also features Muhammad Atta’s cinematography. The film will be released in three languages: English, French, and Swahili.
PIN is a pan-African social company that promotes digital inclusion and rights in Africa. PIN’s second short film, ‘Focus,’ follows the release of ‘Training Day.’
