Join us on Sunday, December 11, as we bring our 2022 film programme to a close with the Nigerian premiere of ALL NA VIBES, a moody crime drama about a trio of teenagers entangled by disillusionment and distractions that just may cost them dearly. The feature film directed by Taiwo Egunjobi (IN IBADAN and CRUSHED ROSES) speaks timeously to issues affecting urban youth in Nigeria (including the unending cycle of closures of federal universities).
ALL NA VIBES has screened at the Hip Hop Film Festival – West Africa, the International African Film Festival in Argentina, and opened the 2021 Nollywood Week Festival in Paris.
We are looking forward to this screening and to having the company of the filmmakers who will be present for the post-screening conversation. The conversation with Taiwo Egunjobi (director), Isaac Ayodeji (writer), Tolu Osaile (actor) will be moderated by culture writer Franklin Ugobude.
Screening starts at 5pm prompt (doors open at 4.30pm) on Sunday, December 11 at Alliance Française Lagos/Mike Adenuga Centre. Entry is free. Come along with a friend.
ABOUT THE FILM
Set in a Nigerian city, against the backdrop of crippling university strikes and political unrest. ALL NA VIBES is an urban drama that follows three out-of-school teenagers and a hitman over a span of five days: Sade, daughter of a politician; Abiola, an aspiring musician, and Lamidi, a delinquent downtown boy dissecting questions on sex, drugs and their future prospects. Tensions escalate when Sade goes missing after Lamidi’s party, leading to the involvement of her father, a hitman and the police.
