Mami Wata


Set in the matriarchal ocean village of Iyi, where West African water deity Mami Wata reigns via the village leader, this genre-bending tale brings to life a futuristic fable that fuses spiritual beliefs with inter-generational tensions. Vividly shot in black-and-white by the talented and award-winning Lílis Soares, Obasi’s third feature is an ambitious visual experience.
