So, on Friday morning I was invited to meet with the Nigerian Ambassador to Germany, HE Ambassador Yusuf Maitama Tuggar, in Berlin. What was meant to be a simple visit resulted in one of the deepest conversations I have had about the impact of films on the state. The Ambassador must have been somewhat impressed because he instantly made a commitment to come to the screening of THE DELIVERY BOY at the Nollywood travel film festival later that night- he came, he saw, and he professed. At the end the screening he took the microphone and publicly labeled the delivery boy “the best Nigerian film he has seen”. This is special for 3 reasons. 1: he is from the north and TDB has a huge northern influence 2: It’s added motivation to pour our hearts into the new film we are working on 3: Our interaction has convinced me that there are quite a number of politicians who understand the importance of what we are doing and are willing to support. So, while working on the many ideas we shared, I’d like to remind other Nigerian, and African, filmmakers that it’s important, now more than ever, that we fearlessly tell our stories. Because, in some ways, molecules of the future of the continent are embedded in every frame we shoot. #thenewnigeriancinema #africancinema #ambassadoryusufftuggar #nodash #adekunleadejuyigbe #theelitefilmteam #somethingunusualstudios
