Among the short films set to play at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival is ‘The Drop In,’ written and directed by Naledi Jackson and starring Mouna Traoré and Oluniké Adeliyi.

On a night like any other, Joelle is closing up her hair salon when a mysterious visitor appears asking too many questions about her citizenship. Nothing is what it seems in this fierce and stylish genre-bending allegory on immigration and belonging.

Naledi Jackson is a writer, director and producer currently based in Toronto and Los Angeles. Her screenwriting credits include the new CTV/ION detective show The Detail, as well as the second season of the Netflix horror anthology series, Slasher. She is also writing the screenplay for Dragon Mountain, a female-fronted Kung Fu feature based in South Africa, which she will direct.

Naledi, a recipient of grants from Bravofact, The Toronto Arts Council, and The Harold Greenberg Fund, is a member of the Writers Guild of Canada.
