Cameroonian film WOMAN premieres in Houston Texas

July 16, 2016 was the US premiere of the highly acclaimed movie called "Woman", a film that underlines the strength of a woman as she deals with infidelity in a relationship. Film is exclusively shot on location in Cameroon. The Cameroonian film industry is on the rise with the advent of talented filmmakers that hail from the country. "Woman" has been well received by its London premiere, it will be making many more rounds in the USA as well as overseas.

The story of "Woman" continues poignant today and hits close to home for filmmaker Goretti, who plays lead in the film. It calls into question what it takes to be a woman in a slowly progressive society where she is still at the bottom of the food chain in terms of her rights. While cultural and sometimes religious norms protect  men who get a pass with infidelity and misogyny, it's not too kind to women.

This premiere doubles as a fundraising gala, benefiting The Dr. Fonya Foundation whose mission is to continue to aid widows and orphans in Cameroon.
