TAINTED CANVAS is a harrowing tale about the effects of child sexual abuse. Morayo battles demons from her past as she struggles to complete an artwork in time for a competition that might propel her career to success. To overcome her trauma, she must make one last trip to confront her troubled past. In collaboration with AF Lagos and IGODO Films, we look forward to screening TAINTED CANVAS, a poignant reminder of the dangers facing children in society.
Join us on May 16 at Alliance Française de Lagos / Mike Adenuga Centre for a screening and conversation with the filmmakers on the topic, ‘Breaking the silence around the sexual exploitation of children’. The event starts at 5:00 PM prompt (doors open at 4.30pm), and is organised in conjunction with Alliance Française Lagos, OKP Productions, IGODO Films, 37th State Productions, Pirano and Pulse.NG.

Morayo is a young, talented and successful Media Exec in London, living with a harrowing past. As a young child growing up in Nigeria, she was sexually exploited by her mother, Rose, from whom she is now estranged. Rayo takes a visit to Lagos and into her past to confront all the hurts and demons that have tormented her adult life, and to find healing and the courage to love.

  1. Hello good afternoon, I and a couple of friends intended to come see the movie but two people couldn’t get their tickets, I’ll like to know if they can come with us or not. I’ll be expecting a response and thank you.
