PAFF 2023 Jury Award Best First Feature Narrative - Winner

With striking visuals, suspense-filled scenes and engaging performances, this fantasy-horror offering is not your typical horror film. If anything, it embraces suspense and drama like the great horror classics so there is something in the story for non-horror fans as well. At its heart is a family drama and a cautionary tale with poignant social commentary. Nigerian-born spirit hunter Ashionye, now living in England, has been hired by her former guardian, Isioma, to investigate and expel a malevolent spirit that has been tormenting her family since the mysterious death of her husband. Ashionye reluctantly accepts the job as a way to repay the debt she owes Isioma. But as Ashionye digs deeper into Isioma’s family situation, she finds herself standing against a familiar force that has brought about her own trauma since childhood. This first feature filmmaker creates a confident blend of drama and multilayered subtexts that will leave viewers reaching for repeat viewing and post credit conversations.
