Ace Nollywood actress, Stephanie Linus‘s award-winning movie, ‘Dry’ was recently screened in Gambia during the African Youth Summit Banjul Plus 10.
‘Dry‘ which is Stephanie’s directorial debut, was lauded by all dignitaries present and further opened up the conversation around maternal health care and Fistula in Africa.
Guests at the well-attended event include the Vice President of Gambia, Isatou Njie Saidy; UNFPA Regional Director for West & Central Africa, Mabingue Ngom; Assistant Minister for Youth Liberia, Kula Fonfana among others.
The movie, which centres on a young girl living with Vesico Vaginal Fistula, parades Darwin Shaw as Dr. Alex, Liz Benson Ameye as the Matron and Bill McNamara as Dr. Brown.
It also features Zubaida Ibrahim 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.
