We already know what happens when two great creative minds come together – and this duo is no exception. Sefi Atta is a Nigerian-American novelist, short-story writer, playwright and screenwriter whose works illuminate the African culture and tradition. Such works include Swallow which narrates the story of a naive secretary whom, after a series of career woes, considers her roommate’s offer to work as a drug mule in mid-1980s Lagos.
