‘Orah’ Director Talks Africa’s Toronto Moment: “We’re Finally Making Our Own Stories”

Nigerian-Canadian filmmaker Lonzo Nzekwe has CAA Media Finance shopping his revenge drama at TIFF as part of the Industry Selects market.

As global streamers like Netflix and Amazon Prime finally make inroads in Africa, Nigerian-Canadian filmmaker Lonzo Nzekwe is enjoying his moment in the sun at the Toronto Film Festival.

CAA Media Finance boarded Nzekwe’s Nigeria-set Canadian revenge thriller Orah with worldwide representation, excluding Canada, just before the feature that stars Star Trek: Discovery actor Oyin Oladejo in the titular role had a prestigious TIFF market screening on Monday night as part of the festival’s expanded Industry Selects program.
