Eyimofe

November 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

THIS SCREENING IS FREE FOR UWM STUDENTS AND UNION CINEMA MEMBERS!

$5 General Admission

. Shot on richly textured 16 mm film and infused with the spirit of neorealism, Eyimofe traces the journeys of two distantly connected strangers—Mofe, an electrician dealing with the fallout of a family tragedy, and Rosa, a hairdresser supporting her pregnant teenage sister—as they each pursue their dream of starting a new life in Europe while bumping up against the harsh economic realities of a world in which every interaction is a transaction. From these intimate stories emerges a vivid snapshot of life in contemporary Lagos, whose social fabric is captured in all its vibrancy and complexity.

(Arie and Chuko Esiri, Nigeria, English and Nigerian w/ Eng. sub, 116 min, 2021, DCP)
