Following the successful premiere of her 5th film – “Follow The Ball” for education at the Hilton Hotel Abuja on August 17th, young filmmaker Zuriel Oduwole has taken her creation to North Africa.
Tucked away in the naturally coated “dust beaten” setting in the ancient Moroccan city of Marrakech, the luxurious Beldi Country Club became the venue for the second Premier of her film, which she began making at the age of 11 in June 2014, during the FIFA World Cup film, with a small crew.
Her Premier audience was an international array made up of women corporate, women community and business leaders, as well as men – drawn from all across Africa:- Cameroun, Senegal, Gabon, France, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, South Africa Kenya, and a large representation from Morocco.
The film tells the story of ONE girl taking TWO footballs across THREE continents and through FIVE countries covering more than 29,000 miles, to get people talking about Girls Education. She also uses the opportunity to show herself and talk to government leaders about what an Educated Girl, can do.
