Ifeoma Fafunwa, Mrs. F., takes up the challenge of staging her stage play HEAR WORD! about the abuse of women in Nigerian society in Makoko, a notorious slum in the heart of the mega city of Lagos, where women suffer from male-domination. Ifeoma expands the original cast of Nigeria’s most acclaimed actresses with young women casted from Makoko. Will these women have the courage to face the community, to speak up for themselves and to be part of a transformation for change?

Director: Chris van der Vorm

Chris worked for ten years at PharmAcces Foundation in Africa before starting to make films. From day one he was intrigued by Nigeria; a country full of contrasts, obstacles but also possibilities. In 2012, he chose to focus fully on a filmmaking career, taking his fascination for Nigeria with him. With the film Mrs. F. he wants to provoke thought about the potential to achieve change through development and contribute to reversing the misguided perception that exists about Africa in general and Nigeria in particular; to show the strength and potential of its people.
