Vote for Project of the Week: Will It Be 'The Planters,' 'I Gotta Be Me,' or 'The Boy from Mushin'?

The winning filmmaker will become a candidate for February Project of the Month. That winner will be in the running for Project of the Year.

The three projects up for this week’s Project of the Week are listed below (with descriptions courtesy of the filmmakers). You can vote at the bottom of the page. (As we did not have a Project of the Day on Presidents Day, there are three possible choices instead of the usual four.)

The Planters: A dark comedy about a reclusive telemarketer who befriends a homeless woman with multiple personalities.

I Gotta Be Me: It’s Benidorm meets Spinal Tap – The unbelievable ‘real’ story of a Rat Pack tribute show.
The Boy from Mushin: The story of Bisi Alimi, who put his life on the line when he came out as gay live on Nigerian national television.

The Planters – What an innovative, inspiring, and a meticulous feat by two women in a lopsidedly male dominated industry.


The Boy from Mushin – no doubt

You wouldn’t know how much life you might be saving by making ‘The Boy From Mushin’ the best, over others. In case you didn’t know what this entails, here: It is a project of a man who came out of the closet in a very hostile country. A man who was threatened because of his preference. A man who lost contact with his family for many years. A man who has lived in fear of his life. A man who later sought asylum from an alien nation, unwanted. This is so educating! He is worth every honour. This project deserves all votes. God bless Bisi.
