WATCH: Lola Okusami’s Short Film “Gone Nine Months” on BN



Set in early 1990s Nigeria, “Gone Nine Months” paints a portrait of a family slowly pulled apart by simmering tensions beneath the surface. Agnes Olajuwon‘s desire for professional growth, her husband’s expectation that his whole family aligns to support his vision of himself, and the children caught in the crossfire of their parents’ dreams and their own youthful exuberance.

Directed by Lola Okusami and shot on location in Calabar, Cross River, the film stars MTV Shuga’s ‘Najite Dede and Zoe Favour. Other talents include newcomers Inimfon Iniama and Olu Euba.

    I am really impressed by the quality of films coming out of Nigeria. This was very very well made and delivered by controlled actors. Kudos to Lola and her team!
