Half of a Yellow Sun, the long-awaited screen adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Orange Prize-winning novel from 2006. A global bestseller about the romantic saga of two sisters and their lovers during the Nigerian-Biafran War. The movie by Nigerian playwright and first-time film-maker Biyi Bandele is bringing one of Nigeria's best writer to the screen — a significant victory for African cinema.
B For Boy by Chika Anadu, whose debut film has been shortlisted for the festival’s Sutherland Award for first-time film-makers is a must watch. A spare, character-driven drama about the social pressure on Nigerian women to bear male children, it tackles challenging issues of politics and gender with a woman’s touch still rare in the industry.
Also in the List is Andrew Dosunmu’s Mother of George focused in the sights and sounds of Yoruba immigrant population in New York.
Mr and Mrs, best award winning Nigerian movie directed by Ikechukwu Oyeka and produced by Chinwe Egwuagu portrays oppressed Nigerian housewife Nse Ikpe Etim by her husband Joseph Benjamin. The excellent performance by Nse as a well educated Nigerian housewife, who lost her touch in the society and a fight against assault on women makes my list of Nigerian movies of the Decade.
The Figurine or Araromire is a film you'll find in my archive under the label 'extremely fantastic. Araromire is neither good nor evil; for anyone that comes in contact with her shall flourish for seven years and for another seven years wrath, terror and destruction on whoever has her in custody
