37th State's short film, NKIRU centers around a group of friends who disappear from a beach party under mysterious circumstances.
Shot in a style reminiscent of the Hollywood urban legend genre and scored by award winning Hollywood music composer Austin Wintory, NKIRU is a modern world perspective on an age-old African tale of love and sacrifice. The film also features music from alternative soul superstar BEZ.
NKIRU and its director were also one of 5 projects featured on 'TOUCHING BASE', an MTV mini documentary series highlighting Africa's most inspiring entrepreneurs.
