Women’s Film Club presents Bad Market June 16
Women’s Film Club is presenting the first screening of the quarter featuring a contemporary Nigerian film, Bad Market, directed by Paul Gaius, at the Ford Foundation.
The Women’s Film Club is a platform that aims to make independent cinema accessible to the Nigerian public through a curated program of film screenings, forums and related events. The Women’s Film Club explores the role of women in film to an African and global audience.
TWFC organizes regular screenings of independent films in Lagos not otherwise shown in mainstream cinemas – including special projects like festivals and art exhibitions.
Bad Market is a short film about a 14-year-old runaway girl, Eno, who was trafficked to the big city of Lagos by Chike, a ruthless pimp/con artiste who intends to profit from her seeming innocence. Each one has to devise a plan to escape life’s harsh realities in a “dog eat dog” world.
The film screening will feature a question and answer and discussion session with the director, with the aim of promoting culture, spreading knowledge through insight and sparking new conversations about pressing social issues relating to women.
The film screening will tale place next Friday at the #Ten 105 Close, Banana Island, Ikoyi, Lagos at 3:00pm and 5:00pm respectively.
