Still From Award-Winning Drama "Confusion Na Wa"

From newly-formed Nigerian production company Cinema Kpatakpata, comes a new dramedy titled Confusion Na Wa, directed by Kenneth Gyang, from a script penned by Tom Rowlands-Rees and Kenneth Gyang.

Starring Ramsey Nouah (Kunle Afolayan's The Figurine), Confusion Na Wa traces the lives of a disparate group of individuals as their paths cross over the course of one day, resulting in tales of lust, infidelity, friendship, revenge, heartbreak and, of course, confusion.

Ali Nuhu, OC UkejeIkponmwosa GoldTony Goodman, Tunde Aladese and Nat Deme co-star in the social-commentary dramedy that is Cinema Kpatakpata’s first film as a company. It was funded by the Hubert Bals Fund of the Rotterdam Film Festival.

Cinema Kpatakpata was formed in 2010 by Kenneth Gyang, Yinka Edward and Tom Rowlands-Rees, with their goal being to produce feature films, documentary and television, in Nigeria and throughout Africa. They tell me that they'll be hosting a private screening of Confusion Na Wa at Rotterdam this week, and are aiming for a summer release.

By the way, "na wa" is akin to let's say an exclamation mark - as in if you're really taken, overwhelmed, or enamored by something. It can both be a positive or a negative. That's the best way I can think of to translate it at the moment. But I'm sure some of my Nigerian friends may come up with something better.

Check out the trailer and full poster for the film below:

    Saw "Confusion Na Wa". Great film. I highly recommend it.

    The trailer could have been tighter, but the overall look is a step up for Nollywood. Also, the premise sort of reminds me of Kunle Afolayan's 'Phone Swap'. Still want to check it out, though.
