The audience’s attention has been drawn to a movie based on true events. ‘The Woman King’ is encircled by the Kingdom of Dahomey, which thrived as one of Africa’s most powerful states in the late eighteenth century.
However, as European merchants intrude on the land, trying to seek wealth at the cost of its people, warrior Nanisca takes a stand to protect her people’s freedom. It’s a historical epic movie about the Agojie, an all-female warrior group that defended the West African kingdom of Dahomey from the 17th to the 19th centuries.

The Biggest Eye-Opener
Schulman talked about misinformation. “The biggest eye-opener was how much misinformation there is about these women and this culture has given that so much of their history was written from the colonizer’s point of view.
So it was really about separating the texts that were from that point of view, which were so disparaging and disrespectful, from the truth.”
“You’re looking at a European colonialist describing a place they’re going to versus getting the story from the voices of the people themselves. And so it was trying to read multiple sources and trying to find a like-minded perception of things. “
