DUBLIN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL: Mami Wata
Saturday 2nd March, 2024 - 20:00€7
This genre-bending tale brings to life a futuristic fable that fuses spiritual beliefs with inter-generational tensions. Set in the matriarchal ocean village of Iyi, where West African water deity, Mami Wata, reigns via village leader Mama Efe, it uniquely brings to the screen a story of mythology, fantasy, and folklore. When the harmony of the village is threatened, two sisters must fight to restore order, as traditions of the past crash with calls from the future.
Directed by C.J. Obasi | 107 mins | Cert TBC | Various with English subtitles
