Award-winning director and actor Abba Makama attended the pre-screening of The Lost Okoroshi at the ongoing Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) 2019.
The Lost Okoroshi made its world premiere as part of TIFF’s Discovery program.
This modern Nigerian story is the latest from director Abba Makama, who is one of the leading voices for Nigerian cinema today.
Directed by Abba Makama, The Lost Okoroshi follows Raymond (Seun Ajayi), a security guard (and something of a layabout) whose main preoccupations are checking out women and figuring out how to escape the bustle of Lagos in favour of the more relaxed countryside.
Sharing his experience at the event, Abba shared photos on his Instagram page with caption:
Its my first time seeing @thelostokoroshi on such a massive screen. What a humbling experience. The audience loved it and Q and A was amazing! Thank you @tiff_net
