Aki Omoshaybi is a relatively quiet name in the British Black film industry.
He’s recently completed his first debut feature ,’Real’ a romcom. We caught up with him however to talk to him about his role in Burning Man a new British Road Trip horror movie.
In cinemas from March 1st Burning Men is about three young musicians Ray (Ed Hayter) and Don (Aki Omoshaybi) who are evicted from their South London squat, they decide to sell their precious vinyl collection and fly to Memphis in search of their destiny.
Frustrated by the shortfall in funds, they steal an ‘uber-rare’ Black Metal record at a Camden record fair and head out of town to sell it. As they drive north in their beaten-up Volvo Amazon, picking up hitchhiker Susie (Elinor Crawley) en route, they find themselves stalked by dark forces apparently unleashed by the ‘devil disc’ they have stolen.
Burning Men gets its digital release March 18th 2019
