Yesterday, Stephanie Linus announced on Instagram that “DRY” will hit cinemas on the 14th of August.
You would recall that we published our most anticipated movies of the year and Stephanies Dry was one of the movies we were eager to see.
Written, produced and directed by Stephanie Linus, the film is an inspired true story based on a young girl Stephanie met in Nigeria many years ago, Aisha.
According to Stephanie, “DRY journeys into heart-wrenching details of a culture not too many film dare to explore. The issue might seem controversial, but if it will set one girl free and open the minds of the people, and also instruct different bodies and individuals to take action, then the movie would have served its purpose.”
The movie follows a trail of Zara’s (played by Stephanie Linus) trip to Africa, her constant turmoil as a result of inexplicable horrors from her child hood, her experiences and heartaches while working with young girls suffering from complications from early child birth as child brides, against the backdrop of a rich African culture. It is full of intrigue, suspense, unbelievable surprises, the joy of reconciliation and the power of the human spirit that is guaranteed to captivate and engage movie enthusiast.
The film stars: Darwin Shaw as Dr. Alex, the legendary Liz Benson Ameye as the Matron, Bill McNamara as Dr. Brown, and Introducing Zubaida Ibrahim Fagge as Halima the teenager who had to endure a life not designed for a child: to be married to a man who was more than four times her age. The production of this film was supported by the Office of the special adviser to the president on MDGs Nigeria, Aberystwyth University Wales, Diamond Bank, Foundation for ethnic integration and harmony in Nigeria (FEHN), Office of the first lady of Ebonyi state, Mikano, Masters Energy and more.
