This January, Freestyle Media will unleash the psychological action fantasy thriller Exceptional Beings co-directed by prolific Nigerian novelist Njedeh Anthony (“Creatures of Necessity,” “Mind Crawlers”) and acclaimed South African Christian Kazadi (“24 Hours Blind,” Blinkers”).
Exceptional Beings, which serves as the prequel to the novel Godhood, explores the existential crisis of two supernatural beings as they question their Godhood when they encounter a woman with an uncanny essence that doesn’t conform with their 4,000 years of knowledge. They journey through her existence relating to their desperate need to understand answers to questions they never believed existed.
The film features an extraordinary cast that embodies the Gods from several pantheons. The cast is led by Ciarra Carter (‘Ooga Booga,” “The Colony”), Dane Oliver (“The Resonator,” “Cupid’s Match”), Rachel Thundat (“9-1-1: Lone Star,” “Secrets Exposed”), Bunmi Famuyiwa (“Ida B. Wells: A Red Record,” “The Wake”), Clark Moore (“Yellowstone,” “Dahmer-Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story”), Chad Sano (“Grease Live!,” “My Crazy Ex”), introducing Jean Charles, Sarah Bonrepaux (“Strayed,” “Mr. Know-It-All”), Victoria Antonelli (“Switched Before Birth,” “Blader”), and cinema icon Eric Roberts (“Inherent Vice,” “The Dark Knight”).
Exceptional Beings will be available to rent and own across all North American TVOD/Digital platforms & on DVD beginning on January 31, 2023, through Freestyle Digital Media.
