Award-winning Nollywood actress Nse Ikpe-Etim is currently in Cape Town, South Africa, shooting the film ‘Shussh’, which is based on the novel ‘Whiplash’ by Tracey Farren.
Ikpe-Etim plays Madeleine, a refugee who comes to South Africa after suffering horrific war-time in the Congo. The film is directed by Meg Rickards, who co-directed the award-winning documentary ‘1994: The Bloody Miracle’.
“We are delighted that Nse Ikpe-Etim is going to make her South African debut on Shussh,” said Rickards. “She is an extraordinary artist, with subtlety and emotional range. I feel privileged to be working with her to tell a story about breaking the silence around the abuse of women and children – endemic in so many parts of our continent.”
Nse Ikpe-Etim’s upcoming projects also include ‘A Hotel Called Memory’ and ‘Stalker’, a thriller by Moses Inwang.
