NANNY Now Streaming

Nikyatu Jusu made history in 2022 with her directorial debut, NANNY. It was the first horror film ever to win Sundance’s Grand Jury Prize, and only the second time that award had gone to a Black woman director. Creative Capital awarded Jusu in 2020 to help fund the creation of the film. NANNY is now available to stream on Amazon Prime Video! The film follows Aisha, an undocumented nanny working for a privileged couple in New York City. As she prepares for the arrival of the son she left behind in West Africa, a violent presence invades her reality, threatening the American dream she is painstakingly piecing together.
