Netflix has acquired historic Nollywood movie “Amina” and will premiere it on November 4, 2021.
The feature film is based on the 16th-century Zazzau empire warrior Queen Amina, directed by Izu Ojukwu (who also directed the intriguing film “76“) and produced by Okechukwu Ogunjiofor.
“Amina” stars Lucy Ameh, Clarion Chukwura, Ali Nuhu, Magaji Mijinyawa, and others, and was shot in Nigeria with post-production in Europe.
It expertly chronicles the legendary many lives of this exceptional woman; the pain and the agony caused by the betrayal of cherished lovers; the ferocious savagery in the face of all battles and enemies; the cunning manipulation at the will of the nobles and sovereigns of kingdoms; and the tender concern over the downtrodden Talakawas or common people.
