Native Media’s objective for Make Room is to make a film that has the potential of winning an Oscar for best foreign language film, so great attention has been given to all the variables that can make this objective a reality. Beyond wining an Oscar, Native Media believes that the story of the over 200 missing Chibok Girls that were kidnaped by Boko Haram can be better told through this movie so the world can appreciate the magnitude of the Chibok situation.
Some of the best crew from around the world has been employed to execute this project and so much effort and equipment has been deployed to making sure that Make Room lives up to expectations.
