Followed by a Q&A with director Tunde Kelani
Nigerian footballer Kashimawo returns home days before the final selections for Nigeria’s World Cup team, and through revisiting his past - his hardscrabble childhood in the town of Abeokuta, where his single mother struggled to raise him – has to make some serious decisions. With a stellar cast, and based on a well-known Nigerian novel, Maami sees veteran Nigerian director Kelani fuse the energy of Nollywood with the seriousness of Yoruba cultural heritage.
