It is impossible to see Nkiru, the critically celebrated short movie shaped by Nigeria’s own 37th State Productions, without gaping at the astonishing local talent pulled together under one umbrella.

 

At its recently held premiere at the Muson Center, Onikan, invitees got a chance to experience the much talked about mystical thriller which was directed by Bolaji Kekere-Ekun.

 

Nkiru, produced by Nkechi Bakareis a fascinating story of a group of friends who vanish from a beach party under shadowy circumstances. The film takes the audience into the uncanny world of the African mermaid tradition otherwise known as ‘mami-water’.

 

With a chain of live screenings across the country planned for the New Year, viewers and critics alike are set to be captivated by astral performances by a crop of fresh and talented actors, including Nollywood newcomer KC Ejelonu.
