Ata Ndele

<p>&nbsp;</p><p>Thanks to everyone who supported us so far! Thanks to you we&#39;re almost there.&nbsp;<a target="_blank" ref="nofollow" href="">Nganji</a>&nbsp;(actor/writer &amp; producer on Ata Ndele) has some more arguments for those of you who are still hesitating&nbsp;<a target="_blank" ref="nofollow" href="">Click here</a>.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>The film &laquo;&nbsp;Ata Ndele&quot; was born from the need to present, in a less stereotyped way, Belgian characters of foreign origin. To do this, Malkia and Nganji wrote a story of love, friendship and power struggle evolving at each stage of the characters&rsquo; lives. The main challenge was to take as a point of departure an idea that is often described as an Afro-European narrative to then being able to question a fundamentally human problem, namely: What remains of a collective ambition when it conflicts with the evolution of our private life?</p><p>&laquo;&nbsp;Ata Ndele&nbsp;&raquo; offers some answers that you will soon see on your screen.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><img alt="" width="100%" src="" /></p><p>The film crew has arrived at the current stage of production thanks to the financial, material and logistical support of friends and artists such as No&egrave;mie Nuo, Sylvia Iweanya, Griet Minnebach, Soul T, Youri Botterham, T&eacute;m&eacute; Tan, Yago Debra, Lucie Dufour, Watna Horemans.</p><p>Brussels based structures such as&nbsp;Green Lab, Le Space and the Pianofabriek CityLab provided some of the locations we were able to use.</p><p>And finally with the extra help of Feza Kamanzi, Uzo Madu, Patrick Kapesa, Francine Dessart, Marie-Charlotte Tatepo Ngonde, we managed to come this far.</p><p>Now we are counting on you to give us the final push this film needs</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><img alt="" width="100%" src="" /></p><p>Synopsis of the short film &quot;Ata Ndele&quot;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Love, friendship, politics; Nila wants them all. But the space she gives to a new acquaintance will force her, sooner or later, to reassess her life.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>-</p><p>Presentation of the film crew</p><p>-</p><p><img alt="" width="100%" src="" /></p><p>Malkia Mutiri. Co-producer, co-writer, director, director of photography.</p><p>After studying at&nbsp; l&#39;Ecole Sup&eacute;rieure des Arts &quot;75&quot;, Malkia does photo and video reports before making music videos, notably for singer Soul T and rapper Zwangere Guy. &quot;Miel&quot;, Malkia&#39;s first short film receives a special mention at the KVS Film Festival System D in December 2016. &quot;Ata Ndele&quot; is her second short film. Find some of Malkia&#39;s work on her Vimeo profile here:</p><p><img alt="" width="100%" src="" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Nganji Mutiri. Co-producer, co-writer, actor.</p><p>For the past ten years, Nganji has become known for his writing, audiovisual narration and acting. After his three films got noticed as a writer-director in Egypt, Belgium and Congo, Nganji and his sister Malkia launched the collective &quot;A brothers and sisters production&quot;. The short film &quot;Ata Ndele&quot; is their second independent co-production. Find out more about Nganji on</p><p><img alt="" width="100%" src="" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Lestine M. Kundi. Actress.</p><p>The casting process quickly indicated that Lestine was the ideal actress to play Nila, the protagonist of the short film &quot;Ata Ndele&quot;. This is the first time that Lestine plays in front of the camera and, fortunately for us, it won&#39;t be the last time we see her on screen.</p><p><img alt="" width="100%" src="" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Mibulu. Actor.</p><p>More passionate about photography, Mibulu passed his screentest with Lestine and Nganji with flying colours. &quot;Ata Ndele&quot; is his first cinematic experience and he can&#39;t wait to pass more casting, as long as the proposed roles are not too clich&eacute;.</p><p><img alt="" width="100%" src="" /></p>
