While speaking about the film with What Kept Me Up, the film’s producer, Yasmin Dodia-Mumba, said, “As a producer, it means a lot to have a feature film on Netflix, especially since it is the first feature film out of Zambia to be on the platform. My hope is that this will open doors for other Zambian filmmakers & African filmmakers to aim for more than has been achieved thus far.”
