COMING SOON: The Milkmaid

310 min read

In rural sub-Saharan Africa, Aisha, a Fulani milkmaid, is searching for her younger sister, Zainab. Dire personal circumstances force her to approach the religious militants who were responsible for their separation in the first instance, but she is determined to find her despite the compromises she must make to do so. However, her quest to recapture her blithe past proves to be unexpectedly complicated in a world whose seething conflict provides several paths to becoming a victim with typically irreversible consequences.

Inspired by the iconic image of the two Fulani milkmaids depicted on the back of the Nigerian Ten Naira note, The Milkmaid is a creative imagining of the fate of two peasant sisters caught up in the upheaval of militant insurgency in rural Northern Nigeria by Desmond Ovbiagele, Yinka Edward and Pat Nebo. The movie stars Anthonieta Kalunta, Maryam Booth, Gambo Usman Kuna and others.
