Review

Nigerian Prince, the electric debut feature film writer-director Faraday Okoro, offers a snapshot of a world not often seen on film, introducing the reality behind all-too-familiar junk-mail scams. Okoro’s film, anchored by uniformly strong performances, breathes cinematic life into characters that have previously only lurked in the shadows of the American imagination. – Loren Hammonds for Tribeca Film Festival

Nigerian Prince follows Eze, a stubborn first-generation Nigerian-American teenager, and his cousin, Pius, a desperate Nigerian Prince scammer. After Eze's mother sends him to Nigeria against his will, Eze retaliates by teaming up with Pius to scam unsuspecting foreigners in order to earn money for a return ticket back to America.

Nigerian Prince is directed by New York City-based Nigerian-American filmmaker Faraday Okoro. Okoro received a $1 million grant from AT&T's Untold Stories program to produce his film.
