Where can Cameroonians enjoy a successful movie like Ninah's dowry as a community? It's sad to know that Cameroon has no cinemas, yet Cameroonians are working relentlessly to  produce beautiful movies which are being recongised out of the country. In the past few years, there has been a rise in activities aimed at harnessing a market in the industry. Could this be the time to ask the dreaded question? Why are there no cinemas in Cameroon? It is a cultural issue or lack of investors? is it a profitable business? what is the future for Cameroonians working hard to promote their culture through movie production? 

We are keen on finding out more information with regards to the venue! Please contact the organisers directly for more information.

About Ninah's Dowry-

At 20, Ninah is a veteran wife of 7 years and a mother of 3 who is stuck in an abusive relationship with no hope of change. When news of her gravely ill father reaches her, she disobeys her husband's orders not to go so she could speak her peace to the man who put her in bondage. After her father dies, Ninah refuses to return home and stays instead to run a small restaurant. When news reaches her husband that Ninah is pregnant, he comes to recover the dowry he paid or take home the woman he owns. By any means necessary."
The official selection of 42th Intl Film Festival of Rotterdam in 2013. "Ninah's Dowry" also had its World Premiere at Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival where the film won the Best Film and Best Actress in a Foreign Film.
