The Golden Conch Shell is a story for our times, based on West African folklore blended with elements of Hans Christian Andersen. Serena and Billy are two siblings trying to find their voice in the contemporary world. Their adventures take them down to the very depths of the sea where they meet the sea goddess Mami Wata and her army of sharks. How will they use their talents and ingenuity to escape Mami Wata’s clutches and return home safely? The film is suitable for children aged 5-10 years
and their families and features shadow puppetry and original music.
The Golden Conch Shell premiered in English at Forum Cinema Hexham

Children’s Film Festival (FIFEM) in March 2021.
