Filmmaker Alain Kassanda makes an argument for young Nigerians’ determination to fight for their country and freedom of thought.

Every Thursday, a group of students from the University of Ibadan, the oldest in Nigeria, organizes a film club, transforming a small amphitheater into a political agora where they refine their vision and develop a critical voice. “Coconut Head Generation”, a scornful expression to designate a stubborn and brainless youth, takes on a whole new meaning when the students turn this stigma around to claim their freedom of thought.
