Umanu Elijah‘s latest film, “A Place Called Forward,” explores the negative repercussions of climate change, such as the recent soot (a toxic carbonate pollution danger induced by climate change) occurrence in Rivers State, South-South Nigeria.
Wale Ojo, Fred Amata, Judith Audu, and other famous Nollywood actors star in the film. It depicts the narrative of a soot-covered location where a strong-willed man believes he can remain there with his family despite his wife’s requests to relocate.
