After a three-month wait, U.A.E. based Zen Film Productions is set to release yet another short film saga under the ‘Ouija’ series banner, which specifically delves into and blurs the lines between horror, mystery, and the supernatural. In continuation to the local success of social awareness short films like The Power, A Dark Tale, The Peril and more, ‘Specter’ is set to take psychological terror to a new dimension.
The ten-minute film sees a public figure, played by filmmaker and CEO of Zen Film Productions Zenofar Fathima, struggling to overcome her inner demons, as she sets out to explore an unprecedented presence.
Zen met up with multiple bloggers, Vloggers and local reporters in UAE on Thursday evening to formally announce the movie series. Talking to the media present, Zen says “I think I’ve given my best to this film, it’s something new and I have taken on a new role like never seen before in my past films.”
The series is currently being filmed during the Coronavirus outbreak with all safety precautions being adhered to, which is a challenging, yet rare phenomena for most filmmakers at this time. The series’ first episode premiered exclusively on Zee Cinemas Middle East (Channel 676 on Etisalat and Channel 179 on Du) on Thursday, 16th July at 11pm GST, and 12.30am IST.
“For the Indian and rest of the world viewers, the series shall be made shortly available on an OTT platform,” Zenofar stated.
Zen, as she’s called in her social circles, is a Dubai based entrepreneur, socialite, producer and actor who has been generating relevant, exclusive and original content since 2018, under her banner Zen Film Productions.
Her foray into short films begun with the ‘Enigma’ series – a collection of short film series based on social awareness. Some of the prominent ones being ‘A Dark Tale,’ based on domestic violence,
‘The Peril,’ a film delving into the imminent dangers of technology, and ‘The Power,’ a spiritual tale of believing in miracles.
Her persona as an actor has been resonated through projects like The Pit, The Peril, Hope and the newest to the bunch – Specter. She has been widely written about in almost all the leading Gulf media brands.
Zen has spent the most of her lockdown time, especially through public service announcement campaigns to raise awareness for those struggling to cope with depression and negative thoughts and the ways to overcome them.
