Description

In Obasi’s modern fable—rendered in vivid monochromatic black-and-white—in the oceanside village of Iyi, the beloved Mama Efe acts as a mediator between the people and the powerful water deity Mami Wata. After a young boy in the community dies and a mysterious rebel deserter named Jasper arrives in the village, a conflict erupts, leading to a violent clash of ideologies and a crisis of faith for the people of Iyi. Visually sumptuous, MAMI WATA is a hypnotic, gripping folk tale that must be seen on the big screen. Film Center exclusive.
