The Supreme Price explores the history of the Pro-Democracy Movement in Nigeria and the fight of the Abiola family for gender equality and democracy.
Hafsat Abiola is the daughter of the first democratically elected President in 10 years whose victory in the 1993 Election was annulled, and who later died in prison. Her mother was assassinated in 1996 after leading marches and strikes in favor of women’s rights. A graduate of Phillips Andover Academy and Harvard, Hafsat works tirelessly to strengthen civil society and achieve gender equality within the corrupt government of Nigeria.
This film is the Winner of “Spotlighting Women Documentary” at the Tribeca Film Festival.
