Bernard Neto working on new movie – ‘Mzungu’


Bernard Neto has teamed up with power writer/producer/directors, Olu Odebunmi, and Olatunde Osunsanmi, to work on a thriller/drama movie called ‘Mzungu‘. Olu and Olatunde were co-writers for the exciting sequel, ‘Smoking Aces 2: Assassin’s Ball’.   They are both extremely accomplished in their own right, with a long list of excellent movies and television shows under each of their belts.   Bernard Neto has worked on several movies and is excited about this latest endeavor.

Set in Nairobi, ‘Mzungu’ is a scripted feature film that explores an American traveler’s unexpected nightmare while vacationing in Africa. Inspired by actual events, the story chronicles Jesse Bloom, a charming, young man who wakes up after a night of hard partying and is arrested for a grizzly murder. Suddenly thrust into the underbelly of Kenyan society, he is forced to contend with the kinds of people that would normally go unseen by an outsider (a tourist). The film honestly examines our perceptions of good and evil while delivering an enthralling and taut thriller.
