A month ago AFI FEST 2013 awarded Nigerian filmmaker Chika Anadu’s feature film debut, B For Boy, with the Breakthrough award, which was accompanied by a $5,000 cash prize.
Developed at the Cannes Cinefondation Residence Program, the drama, an elegant realist drama that questions Nigeria’s gender divide as a middle-class woman resorts to desperate measures after a miscarriage, made its debut at the BFI in London this year.
Wendy interviewed Chika last month. If you missed that conversation, click HERE to read it. She’s definitely one to watch.
And also Nijla reviewed B For Boy after its AFI Fest screening, which you can read HERE.
A first teaser for the film, plus 2 clips from it, are embedded below (hat/tip Bella Naija):
