My American Nurse

Looks like only one Nigerian film was selected at this year's Pan African Film Festival. Paschal Atuma's "My American Nurse" will premiere on 2/14 3.00 pm at the festival. The story is about a Nigerian man who, tired of dating in America decides to import (so to speak) a nurse from home. I guess he did not bank on the woman embracing the American culture.

Hmmmm....sounds just like Chico Ejiro's Life In New York, starring Jim Iyke, Desmond Elliot, and a few hollywood wakapasses...but in this case the babe came from Naija to jam her so called hubby JIM IYKE only to find out he lived with his American wifey and so on... anyway

it's one movie you watch only when you have nothing else to do.

Pom Pom no offense here but ....

Next thread please
A naija film in a good film festival is never boring to me. I enjoy our success. Why don't you wait to see it before you knock it - that is someones hard work being recognized and you wanna knock it. Don't know the guy but I will be there.

Pompom and NTB, you guys have to understand what Joi means here. We have undergone so much devastating disappointments from these so called Americanized movies that we just don't want to endure one more, until proven otherwise.

Let's hope that "My American Nurse" turns out to be different, if not, Joi girl, I throway salute to ya.

What would I be doing on a site like NR if I did not have the ultimate hope that one day.. we will be surprised. Hope reigns eternal... even if takes time one day we will all get right. I want to be optimistic and not dismissive until I see the movie. If it is crap.. I will announce it if only to spare other hope seekers the agony.

If the answer is yes,then it is good news. "My American Nurse" must be a work of some note then,to be thus honored. Infact,no Nollywood movie has ever(emphasis mine) been nominated for any award in any category in Fespaco's history.
Inaugurated in 1969 and celebrated every two years,it is considered one of Africa's most significant cultural events.Some of the finest and most gifted filmmakers on the continent have been discovered there. The movies that usually make it there are the ones that attempt to examine,highlight,uncover and raise awareness of some significant social issue or problem in Africa or some issue of particular importance and note to the peoples of Africa.

Pompom, are you referring to Fespaco- the prestigious and respected Pan-African film festival- or to something else?
