Director Joanna Lipper builds up a coherent, accessible account of Nigeria's otiose politics since the late 1980s, supplemented by nifty graphics, archive footage, and explicatory contributions from expert witnesses such as Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka.
This doc weaves interview and archive, making it a valuable beginner's guide to Nigeria's problems.
Offers riveting insight into the contradictions of a dynasty of reformist aristocracy, as well as a country that has yet to recover its 250 schoolgirls abducted last April by the Muslim terrorist group Boko Haram.
The Supreme Price may sound like a metaphorical title, but after seeing this strong, forthright documentary, you'll understand it's the literal truth.
Joanna Lipper's documentary shapes one country's recent history into an accessible and tragic family drama.
Hafsat Abiola knows how rare is her chance to speak, so with keen intelligence she does, and it's compelling.
An enlightening documentary on the troubles of Nigeria and the rise of a female leader who is an impresario of change.
It attains its power by rooting Hafsat's struggle against a crosshair of different forces, taking the time to attentively and vividly express their source. Using archive footage she tells the story of Nigeria's military political history.
Joanna Lipper's documentary tells an important story that will be unfamiliar to many Westerners, although it could do with more panache in its telling.
[Makes] visible the difficult history of Nigeria.
