About Witness (Eleri)

What is life... madness, An illusion, a shadow, a story? The greatest good is little enough; Life is a dream, and dreams themselves are only dreams. But you need a Witness through this dream.

The quintessential story of how the love of money corrupts the individual and ultimately the society. The life essence of a community is sold for money that results into disaster for every member of the society. Ayan-angalu drum,the soul of Ilu-La community is exchanged for money. The transaction is done through Chief Bamgboye the ultimate greedy business man, an unwillingly, helpless Prince Aderoju of Ilu-La, the president and top members of the Drummers Guild of the community to Mr Fox, a white business man. The film potrays the white man insatiable greed of acquiring artifacts and desecration of other peoples' cultures without regard for its consequences on the people involved.

Like an evil wind that blow no good, Aderoju in trying to save the life's of his wife and child, gets the ancient, sacred and mystical drum,on the threat of the destruction of his family, through false pretenses and gifts of filthy lucre and still looses the wife and ends up with an ailing child and a messed-up life. A mixture of Yoruba traditional life and beliefs, modern city life, seamlessly flowing into one another makes the film a pleasant experience.
