CGiii Comment

Winner of the Short Film Award at BFI: London Film Festival 2023.

Inexplicable to say the least!

Mournful rather than poetic. With very little in the way of film-making talent, this is just an anonymous litany of complaint and blame.

The overall impact is soporific.

The(ir) Blurb...

With Nigerian queer history erased from the national narrative of Nigeria, queer Nigerians in the UK gather to tell their stories, documenting their experiences so they can never be erased again.
