Speaking on the film, director Mildred Okwo shared: “As a filmmaker, I am drawn to telling stories that capture the essence of my observations and La Femme Anjola, is one of such films. With this project, I had the opportunity to present a classic noir tale with a distinctively African twist; one that speaks for the times as it chronicles the journey of a young middle-class man who is simply a product of today’s Nigeria. In many ways, his story is the story of a modern-day Nigerian.”

‘La Femme Anjola’ recently scooped four AMAA nominations including the Best Actress and Best Actor categories.
