WCW: Stephanie Linus Brings Home the Prize!


Stephanie Linus’ is our woman crush today for many reasons most of which is realted to her womanness and empathy to other women. especially the way it was depicted in the multiple award winning movie, Dry. The movie Dry just brought her the Programmers’ Award for Narrative Feature at the recently concluded Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles, USA.This award was given alongside other prestigious awards to film makers from across the world whose movies were screened at the largest and most prestigious black film festival in America.

Produced, directed, and starring Stephanie Linus, the film is an inspired true story that depicts the life of two young girls living as child brides in West Africa. The critically acclaimed movie focuses on child marriage and Vesico Vaginal Fistula (VVF), journeying into the heart-wrenching details of a culture not too many films dare to explore.
