Henry Ozuluonye the producer and director of the flick ‘Last Slave’, speaking with journalists recently at the release of the movie called on the government to concentrate on piracy because it’s killing the creative industry.

“Film makers suffer setback after investing so much in movies because of piracy…Before you even release the movie, it would have been pirated. The government should work adequately to check piracy. They should also make sure that necessary support is given for Nollywood to grow,” he posited.

The filmmaker opined that his movie Last Slave, which features Francis Duru and Nuella Njubigbo as lead characters, was a fiction and the aim is to lend a voice in the fight against human trafficking in Nigeria and Africa as a whole. He expresses confidence that the movie will be a wake-up call to all and sundry to join hands in warding off the ugly menace of human trafficking from the corridor of Africa.

The producer disclosed that the movie was shot within 25days and he budget of the movie was estimated at a sum of $200,000 and is the biggest movie by the producer so far.  Although, the movie has been premiered in the United States, it was recently made available to the Nigerian audience. Other members of the cast include, Zulu Adigwe, Joyce Kalu and Patrick Onyeocha.
