Culture writer and budding filmmaker, Dika Ofoma, has teased the coming of his latest film, A Quiet Monday, in conjunction with Bluhouse Studios.

A Quiet Monday is a story dear to my heart and I can’t wait to share it with you all,” announced Dika on Twitter as he shared the first poster for the film, giving audience a sneak peek of the story.

Although details about the plot have been kept under wraps, Ofoma, however, described the film, which explores the complexities of communal and familial relationships, as his most challenging film yet as he takes helm as screenwriter and director for the film. A Quiet Monday marks his third release following the success of his short films, The Way Things Happen (2022), and A Japa Tale (2023), which explores the dynamics of relocation through the story of a young couple, Emuche and Dubem.
