I am so glad that DRY has been selected to screen at the 24th Pan African Film Festival. One of the dreams I had while making this movie is that it would be seen on several platforms across the world and that dream is coming to life.
After screening around the world, drawing attention while shining light on controversy and receiving acknowledgement from world leaders, ‘DRY’ has been selected to screen at the largest and most prestigious black film festival in America – the Pan African Film Festival (PAFF). Also called the quintessential Black festival, PAFF is the largest event during Black History Month, celebrated in the U.S. every February and is scheduled to take place from February 4th –15th in Los Angeles.
‘DRY’ will be screened on Sunday, February 7th, Saturday, February 13th and Monday, February 15th. For more information on times and location, please visit www.PAFF.org
‘DRY’ is critically acclaimed inspired true story that depicts the life of two young girls living as child brides in West Africa. The movie focuses on child marriage and Vesico Vaginal Fistula (VVF), journeying into the heart-wrenching details of a culture not too many films dare to explore. The film stars my humble self as Dr Zara, Darwin Shaw as Dr. Alex, the legendary Liz Benson Ameye as the Matron, Bill McNamara as Dr. Brown, and introducing Zubaida Ibrahim Fagge as Halima the teenager who had to endure a life not designed for a child.
