The Official Trailer For Charles Obi Emere’s Short Film ‘Buried’
This year’s AFRIFF will feature the short film.

The official trailer for Charles Obi Emere’s latest production, a short film named ‘Buried,’ has been released.
The Chinyere Ohuonu produced film, starring actors Seun Ajayi, Toyin Oshinaike, and Belinda Yanga-Agedah, follows the story of 33-year-old Ekanem (Ajayi), who returns home after long years of estrangement from his family to perform the funeral rites of his late brother, but first, he must deal with the wrath of his father and sister, who never want to see him again.
‘Buried,’ according to Emere, who also serves as the film’s writer, is based on actual events inspired by his brother’s near-death experience due to an overdose.
“The fear of losing the boy to hard drugs whilst no one could do anything about it birthed a story that would take on new meaning; a piece that touches on the norms, nuances, and impact of burials in Southern Nigeria while exploring the subject of familial relationships and forgiveness,” the producers share on the 12-minute length film.
“Buried offers a glimpse into how frustrations in family dynamics can cause this solemn event to become one that opens a cankerworm of emotions separate from the mourning of the dead.”
‘Buried,’ along with over 100 other movies, will be screened at this year’s Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF). The short film was chosen to advance to the festival’s quarter-final round.
