The IPO is very saddened by the passing of Friederich Stark. We affectionately remember him as one of this organisation’s founding fathers. Our chairperson, Akin Omotoso also has fond memories of Friederich from his acting days on Generations. The local film and TV industry has been dealt a serious blow in the past couple of months, with the passing of Junaid Ahmed and now Friederich Stark and Elsabè Roux. We send our condolences to all family members, loved ones and colleagues, during this difficult time.
