Anyiam-Osigwe wrote and directed No Shade as her feature directorial debut in 2018; She became only the 6th Black British female director to release a feature in UK cinemas. The race drama, which centres on the problematic issue of colourism, stars Adele Oni (Years and Years), Kadeem Pearse (Chewing Gum), Sharea Samuels, Clare Anyiam-Osigwe, Algie Salmon-Fattahian and Jade Asha (The Intent). The cast also includes Shone Romulus (Top Boy) and Judith Jacob (Eastenders). Oni plays the lead character, one of several Black British millenials in the storyline in pursuit of true love but who continually grapples with their self-identity.
No Shade is executive produced by Emmanuel Anyiam-Osigwe for BUFF Originals. Andrew Eluka and Jesse Quinones serve as co-producers and Shantelle Rochester serves as associate producer for Ida Rose. No Shade premiered at the British Urban Film Festival on June the 5th last year and was released in UK and U.S cinemas last November.
