Delta Boys

Delta Boys


Montana Premiere

DELTA BOYS explores the untold stories of the Niger Delta militancy—rebels who band together in the face of corrupt government oppression in this oil-rich region of Nigeria. This intimate look at the militias, their goals and global impact, follows the lives of two militants: Ateke Tom, the ‘Godfather’ of the Niger Delta Vigilante Force, and Chima, a 21-year-old who left his family to join the fight.

The film also documents the life of villagers caught in the crossfire of the conflict. Mama, a 22-year-old, struggles to give birth to her first child with no access to modern medical care, while raids are launched from a militant camp across the river.
