This observational documentary transitions from the safety of a small lecture hall to the streets in the height of the #EndSARS movement – a series of mass protests against police brutality in Nigeria.
Once a week, students from the University of Ibadan meet to watch, reflect, and discuss films. The film club has become a safe space to screen works centred around intersectionality, feminism, and politics from directors like Med Hondo to John Akomfrah, whilst leaving space for spirited debates and critical thinking. This youthful collective refutes the expression that the younger generation can be imperceptive and idle through using the means of film to position themselves as an organised union to protest and challenge Nigeria’s complicated politics.
Filmmaker Alain Kassanda makes an argument for young Nigerians’ determination to fight for their country and freedom of thought.
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Alain Kassanda.
