Written by Taiwo Adediran on September 22, 2020
‘Citation’, a forthcoming movie by Kunle Afolayan, a Nigerian actor and filmmaker, has been scheduled to debut on Neflix, on November 6, 2020.
Netflix broke the news on Monday while similarly announcing other films to join its continuously growing catalogue of original Nollywood contents.
‘Citation’ tells the story a 21-year-old female student on a Nigerian campus who takes the case of a trendy university don to the institution’s senate body on account of the latter’s treatment of her.
Other events that unfold eventually pits her world against that of the respected academic, baring the realities that frequently play out in many male-dominated educational environments.
Speaking on the movie’s theme, Afolayan said: “Citation will create awareness on the violence against women in the public and private sphere. It’ll educate society on enforcing women’s rights.
“The movie will encourage and embolden women to stand up against mistreatment and abuse by a patriarchal society. It has been designed to propel women to aspire to become successful leaders.”
