Kudos to Stephanie Okereke-Linus. Her movie: DRY won the best movie award at the recently concluded AMVCA (African Magic Viewers Choice Awards). Nollywood should make more of these types of movies. One of the most touching and socially relevant Nigerian movie I’ve watched in a while now.
The movie is based on a true story of a 13-year old girl in Northern Nigeria. It captures themes such as VVF, Child Marriage and Abuse. Very evocative and thought-provoking!
[I wish they’d screened this at the UN alongside Pakistan’s “Girl in the River.” Both are such very powerful movies! I’ve been promoting this movie since it premiered 🙂 I’m hoping to get the rights to screen it in Toronto].
I’m so happy to announce that it is now available for download on amazon. It streams for those resident in the USA here: http://amzn.com/B017QHELTU
I simply love events like the #AMVCA (Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards).
I DONT THINK IT’S VAIN AT ALL TO LOOK GOOD, especially with the right intentions in mind. When people take the time to glam up and look great, it is a sort of evangelism, I think 🙂 A huge congratulations to all the nominees and winners. And I’d like to also say thank you to all the ladies (and gents) who brought on their ‘A’ game! Beauty is magical.
