The Cameroon movie industry is currently witnessing a remarkable upswing with the premiere of mind-blowing films enriching our repertoire. The official world premiere of the much-awaited narrative ''Ninah's Dowry'' produced by Victor Viyuoh is scheduled to take place in October at the Forte Lauderdale International Film Festival, Florida, USA. The mouth-watering film stars prolific Cameroonian actors like Mbufung Seikeh, Anurin Nwunembom, Nkwah Kingsley, Kecha Nobert, Una Musoro Una, Christa Eka Assam, Che Hilarious, Benyalla Dorothy, Sally Ntalla and Ambebih .The movie was produced from February to May. Principal photography took two months in Sabga and Jakiri.
At 20, Ninah is a veteran wife of
7 years and a mother of 3. She is stuck in an abusive relationship with no hope of change. Her family lives off her meager earnings from farm work while her husband, Memfi, drinks away his equally meager earnings as a shepherd.
When news of her gravely ill father reaches Ninah she decides to go speak her peace to her father even as her husband commands her to stay and get the farm ready before the rains come. Ninah disobeys Memfi by packing and attempting to leave.
This action sets off an incredible series of events with a whirlwind of suspense, thrills, and adventure set across the Cameroon landscape. Mbufung Seikeh as Ninah in her screen debut is nothing short of astonishing in one of the strongest performances of the Festival. Anurin Nwunembom as Memfi brings a calm, calculated menace to the film.
