Saidi Balogun & Kate Henshaw-Nuttall star in Eti Keta (Third Party) – The First “100% Ankara Movie”

It has been labelled by the filmmaker as the first and only “100% Ankara Movie” ever produced. For actor/filmmaker, Saidi Balogun, his movie “Eti Keta” (Third Party) is beyond a movie, it is a labour of love and a celebration of our rich and diverse African culture. Saidi was inspired to produce the movie after the Director General of the Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation challenged filmmakers to create movies that “complement our culture, promote tourism and preach the gospel of the made in Nigeria goods.”
Though the movie was filmed and screened in 2010, according to the filmmaker,  2011 is the year that “Eti Keta” will be unveiled to the world. The current plan is to enter the movie for international film festivals and roll it out for wide release in Nigerian cinemas.
So you mean they wore Ankara throughout the movie? Cool stuff I must say. Love the duo of Saidi and Kate so it’s a must watch for me.
