Nadine Ibrahim has released the trailer for her new short film, "Tolu."
"Tolu" tells the story of a young girl, who lives with her family in a small fishing community in Nigeria.
In order to prove herself valuable to the community and break the gender stereotype, she embarks on a journey by herself into the ocean to try and catch as many fish as possible.
On her journey, she meets a wise old man that shows her a side to reality that she has never seen before.
According to Ibrahim, "Tolu" is a short film trying to do something that is rarely seen in Nigerian films; the use of visual effects to enhance the beauty and narrative of the story.
"Partnering with local artists we planned to create a unique art piece that will stand as a milestone for Nigerian film," she said in a press statement.
‘TOLU’ is backed by a passionate team of visionary filmmakers with one goal; to create an art piece that will break boundaries and push the Nigerian film industry further into the limelight of world cinema."
