Rhoda, whose works are well known in the UK and Nigeria, will also attend the 2013 edition of Atlanta’s BronzeLens Film Festival. The film festival will take place in November (7-10). At the event, the producer will introduce her documentary plans.
“Atlanta has long been recognised as America’s premier city for African-Americans in pursuit of a dream whether it is entertainment, business or some other pursuit,” says Rhoda.
“We know that the Atlanta region is one of the major US centre points for the Nigerian population in the US, so we can’t think of a better market for illuminating the success of Nigerian-born citizens of the United States,” she continued.
The documentary is designed to offer a viewpoint on the Nigerian community in Atlanta as well as give more understanding into this rising Diaspora population.
