On another note:
This is a Nigerian film/series about a masculine sexually ambiguous woman hunter that was raised as a boy by her father, in this 2014 Nigeria, which is not surprising at all.
My favourite [para]quotes from the series are:
"That girl is a l-, l-, l-… local girl"
"If I’m not the man, then are you the man?" She: "Ehen, you never knew?"
"Grandmothers prophecy came to pass, your father was always asking the gods for a son and he got one in the disguise of a woman"
And when she talks about not wanting to be married. The film is actually set up to sympathise with her and her struggles against various men that harass her and her ailing father. She is the hero of the film. She breaks many taboos, but she eventually wins the admiration of her cousins and the film doesn’t head towards changing her into a ‘good woman’, well, as a far as I watched. The only thing I don’t like, apart from the melodrama and quality, is the exaggerated ‘ritualist’ backstory and subsequent scenes, and it’s in English.
It’s quite interesting to see how traditional (Igbo) Nigerian society is completely removed in the minds of Nigerians from whatever is currently going on now. Nnya, this is a good fim doe.
