In his most recent trip to the big screen, Director Femi Agbayewa takes a lighthearted look at what it means to marry well. Emeka Nwandu (played by HBO The Wire’s Gbenga Akinnagbe) thinks he has his “American Dream” all figured out. He is in line for a promotion at work and his girlfriend, Jumoke, has agreed to marry him. Everything is going perfectly until Jumoke’s father refuses to let her marry outside their tribe and Emeka’s boss puts a zany condition on the new promotion. These new terms will jeopardize the whole wedding if it does ever happen. As if these pressures weren’t enough, Emeka also has a big secret he’s been keeping from his bride-to-be.

My goal is to write and direct universal stories using the language of film. So whether you’re watching one of my films in Lagos, Nairobi, Joburg, Accra, Port Au Prince, Atlanta, New York, or Miami, you can relate. I press record and watch a story unfold that we can all relate to in our own lives. But I want to take it one step further by making films that will touch Africa and the Diaspora so eventually there will no longer be a Nigerian filmmaker, an African filmmaker, or an African American filmmaker but just a filmmaker telling our stories.
