Africa Rising- Mother of George

Photographer turned film maker, Andrew Dosunmu is back with a new film “Mother of George”. It has already won an award for cinematography at Sundance, indeed a very good start. His previous outing “Restless City” also gathered a lot of buzz, and this one is no different as it’s become water cooler chatter for the new generation of African Film Makers, happy to see someone out there representing.

The number of US and UK based Nigerian origin film makers is on the rise, and their Afro Centric themes are giving the world a whole new view of African people and culture that Hollywood never did and often distorted or one sided.

I look forward to seeing this film and hope it hits the cinemas in Lagos .
