His acclaimed crime drama Man On Ground, traveled the international film festival circuit from 2011 through last year, after its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in the Contemporary World Cinema category, and Nigerian writer/director Akin Omotoso is onto his next feature film project, titled Night Has Fallen, was written by both Omotoso and Mark Johnston, and is described as a political drama.

But while we wait for that film to arrive, watch the below 17-minute informative behind-the-scenes feature on the making of Man On Ground, courtesy of our friends at Africa Is A Country.

Recapping... Man On Ground, a bold and exacting portrayal of rising xenophobia in South Africa, tells the story of a young Nigerian man living in the African refugee tenements of Johannesburg who disappears, and in the span of a single night, his brother, on a short visit from London, tries to find out what happened to him. The narrative unfolds against the background of animosity against immigrants in the country.

Hakeem Kae-Kazim and Fana Mokoena star. Both have acted in several stateside TV shows and movies, from Criminal MindsPirates of the Caribbean24 and others.

First check out the brooding trailer for the film below, and then watch the 17-minute feature on the making of the film, from funding, to casting, to festival reception, and more, which I found very informative (unfortunately, the film isn't yet available on the home video market here in the USA):
