"Palaver" a romance of Northern Nigeria was the first film made in Nigeria. It was made in Toro in Bauchi state of Nigeria in 1926 by English man Geoffrey de Gruchy Barkas.
He used the local villagers and gave them speaking roles for the major characters. They became the first Nigerian movie stars and also among the first black actors in the history of cinema. Film critics praised their outstanding acting after the screening of the film in the UK. But "Palaver" has never been shown in Nigeria. The grand children and great grandchildren of these actors should see this film as a legacy of their cultural heritage and the Bauchi State government should make Toro a film tourist site with photographs from "Palaver" for the education of the public on the history of the Nigerian cinema and for the promotion of local and international tourism.
