The Supreme Price Trailer (2014)
Trailer for the documentary The Supreme Price.
Director Joanna Lipper elegantly explores past and present as she tells the remarkable story of Hafsat Abiola, daughter of Nigeria's President M.K.O. Abiola who won a historic vote in 1993 that promised to end years of military dictatorship. Shortly after the election, Abiola was imprisoned and his victory annulled. His daughter, on the verge of graduating from Harvard, decided to return home and join her parents' struggle. Through Hafsat's family's story, we see the evolution of the pro-democracy movement in Nigeria, and Hafsat herself continues to face the challenge of transforming a corrupt culture of governance into a democracy capable of serving Nigeria's most marginalized population: women.
