Nadine’s new short film, Tolu, tells the story of a young girl that lives with her family in a small fishing community in Nigeria.
“In order to prove herself valuable to the community and break the gender stereotype she embarks on a journey by herself into the ocean to try and catch as many fish as possible. On her journey she meets a wise old man that shows her a side to reality she has never seen before.”
In November, Nadine wrote about her struggle finding a VFX artist to create the visual effects to enhance the beauty and narrative of the story. She mentioned she didn’t want to get a VFX artist that is not Nigerian and she eventually found and hired Genesis Williams.
The cast of Tolu cast consists of award winning actor Wale Ojo, Somkele Iyamah, Halimat Olarewaju and Karibi Fubara.
