The Supreme Price is a feature length documentary film that traces the evolution of the Pro-Democracy Movement in Nigeria and efforts to increase the participation of women in leadership roles. Following the annulment of her father's victory in Nigeria's Presidential Election and her mother's assassination by agents of the military dictatorship, Hafsat Abiola faces the challenge of transforming a corrupt culture of governance into a democracy capable of serving Nigeria's most marginalized population: women.
Produced and Directed by Joanna Lipper, this film was made with support from The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Ford Foundation/Just Films, ITVS, the Tribeca Gucci Spotlighting Women Documentary Award, Chicken & Egg Pictures, Women Make Movies and IFP Spotlight on Documentaries. The extended trailer for this film was commissioned by Gucci to launch their global Chime for Change Campaign at TED 2013.
