37thSTATE presents the ‘LADY IN THE WATER’ documentary.
37thSTATE presents a documentary diving into the myth of Mami Wata (mermaids) in Nigeria, Africa, and beyond.
Is she a benevolent force for good fortune, health, and endless riches—or is she a jealous force for evil, unleashing trouble and wreaking havoc on those that cross her? Directed by Tolu Itegboje and produced by Bolaji Kekere-Ekun, Lady In The Water is the latest release from 37thSTATE that seeks to expose the long-revered and long-feared legend of the water-goddess widely known as “Mami Wata”. The documentary also acknowledges the different manifestations of the ‘lady in the water’ archetype across Africa as well as on other continents.
The documentary begins with a captivating re-telling of one man’s experience with Mami Wata, inspired by real events. With insights and contributions from acclaimed filmmaker Tunde Kelani, Dr. Sotiris Papadoupolos, as well as Mami Wata worshippers and skeptics, and more, this documentary is as informative as it is entertaining. While examining the history and spirituality of the myth, as well as the good-fortune and destruction befalling the lives of those who come across her, this documentary will change your perception on what you think you know about Mami Wata.
Lady in the Water will serve as a great prelude to 37thSTATE’s short-film, Nkiru, releasing online in just a few days on Dec 6th.
