Mamiwata

A film that deals with the concept of duality in life as exemplified by the forces of nature, otherwise esoterically known as the angels of the Earthly Mother. It explores a woman's relationship with the ocean which she sees as a powerful conquering queen who is as much an ominous force as she is her source of serenity.

Originally created as an Instagram film, Mamiwata went on to premiere at Chale Wote Festival, in 2017 as part of the official selection and was also part of the official selection of the Ndiva Women's Film Festival in the same year. It was screened at the 20th edition of Videoex Festival in Zurich, Switzerland, and has also been screened at various film events across Nigeria.
