Naija Beta, a 50-minute documentary about Nigerian MIT students returning home to launch and run a robotics camp for teenagers, is now available via Vimeo or VHX for $4.99 rental or $8.99 purchase.

The film has been playing the film festival circuit for the past year, garnering its Ghanian director Arthur Musah such honors as Best Feature Documentary from the Atlanta Urban MediaMakers Film Festival, Best Documentary Short Film from the Roxbury International Film Festival, and best Feature Length from the Silicon Valley African Film Festival.

A second film by Musah, One Day I Too Go Fly, is now in post-production. It chronicles the four-year story of youths from Tanzania, Rwanda, Zimbabwe and Nigeria as they go through undergraduate studies at MIT.
