In a terrain otherwise tagged as « for men », Amaka’s Kin seeks to examines the careers of the very few female directors practicing in the very male dominated Nigerian film industry, widely known as Nollywood; their journey and pain, their joys and the challenges and hurdles they had to jump to become directors of film, and by extension celebrates the success of the career of the most prominent female director of film, the late Amaka Igwe, who was pivotal to the growth and development of Nollywood and indeed an inspiration to The Women of Nollywood.
