Jusu won the Shadow and Act Filmmaker Challenge with her screenplay, and received $3,000 to make the film. The result can now be seen here. It’s only 12 minutes long, but it won’t be available after midnight on Friday (18th Feb) so if you haven’t seen it yet, check it out now before they remove it! Nikyatu Jusu is an award-winning filmmaker who’s about to complete her MFA at New York University, film school.

We’ll continue to look out and support her, and you should too! Bless…
