Nollywood star Rita Dominic, whose debut as a producer The Meeting is out in the cinemas today has been nominated for the Best Actress award at the Kalasha Film and Television Awards organised by the Kenyan Film Commission.
Rita Dominic is nominated for her role in the Kenyan film, Shattered. This is the same role, which won her the 2012 AMAA award for Best Actress in a Leading Role.
Produced by Carol Nguta (recently voted as one of the Top 10 women in the Kenyan film industry) and directed by Gilbert Lukalia of Kenya, Shattered tells the story of a woman whose traumatic childhood in a seemingly ideal middle class family becomes a precursor to a life of turmoil, depression, and self destructive behaviour.
Inspired by several true life stories, Shattered is a harrowing watch as the plot follows the struggle of Keziah Njema (Rita Dominic) to overcome her demons and downward spiral caused by years of abuse.
Also nominated for the same award are Patricia Kihoro (Miss Nobody), and Joan Amara (Miss Pathetic). The 2012 Kalasha Film and Television Awards takes place on December 8 in Nairobi, Kenya.
We wish Rita all the best!
