Netflix has released a teaser trailer and photos for its highly-anticipated folktale reimagination series.
The final products come at the heels of a fierce competition that saw 6 budding filmmakers emerge with take-home prizes of $25,000 plus a production budget of $75,000.
All 6 movies have been packaged into a collection premiering on the streaming service on March 29, 2023.
Since the stories are from different African countries, we expect to hear different languages from across the culture-rich confinement. If all goes as expected, this ambitious project is expected to launch a new set of future filmmakers.
The winning filmmakers include:
🇳🇬 Korede Azeez (Nigeria)
🇺🇬 Loukman Ali (Uganda)
🇲🇷 Mohamed Echkouna (Mauritania)
🇹🇿 Walter Mzengi (Tanzania)
🇰🇪 Voline Ogutu (Kenya)
🇿🇦 Gcobisa Yako (South Africa)
