 Lancelot Imasuen (director of Entanglement, Home in Exile, Bent Arrows, A Private Storm, ABCs of Death 2, Invasion 1897) is the buzz of the moment in Nollywood for one of the most ambitious movies in the Nigerian film industry, his historical epic Invasion 1897 based on the invasion of the Benin Kingdom by the British Empire in 1897 and how they carted away the priceless ancient artifacts belonging to the kingdom. And he is also trending in Hollywood for being the only African director among the 26 selected directors making the short horror thrillers of The ABCs of Death 2 series.
