Nollywood Star Actress Kate Henshaw Nuttal Speaks On "Love International" @ the Berlinale Talent Campus
Kate Henshaw Nuttal is the Nollywood actress I know who is most likely to win the Oscar for Best Actress one fine day, not far away.
She is an awesome talent from the first time I noticed her acting skills when were all taking the first steps in the building of the foundation of Nollywood in the early 1990s in Lagos.
As I was writing this post, she was on TV, playing her outstanding role as the leading lady in Tchidi Chikere’s “Show Me Heaven” with Jim Iyke playing her leading man. A well produced and directed love story with great depth. The casting was perfect and the acting was perfect. Olu Jacobs played the caring father of the irresponsible son played by Jim Iyke.
It's a beautiful love story and you can view the trailer below.

There are few things more pleasurable than seeing a wonderful love story on the big screen. Although love may be regarded as an eternal affair and a natural human condition, looking at films from the different parts of the world, one can see clear distinctions arising from very different cultural contexts that shape relationships from the "first sight" till "death tears them apart". Morale, ethics, family constellations, gender relations, economics, traditions and religion – all these issues result in what the Western world likes to describe as the most private sphere of an individual. Three super stars from the genre of "love depiction" – Bollywood’s Shah Rukh Khan, Kate Henshaw-Nuttall of the Nollywood fame and German leading lady and Silver Bear winner Maria Schrader – look at today’s cinema and its purpos as a role model for "real" love stories, as well as a fulfilment of audiences’ desire for escapism and as a reflection of the world we live in – be it in India, Nigeria, Germany or elsewhere.
