A documentary film on primary education in a Lagos City slum named Makoko.

In the heart of Nigeria’s fastest growing city, Lagos, two worlds constantly live out the irony of economic realities. Divided by the popular third mainland bridge, the bustling economic part of the city stands adjacent to MAKOKO – a sprawling fishing community, floating on the waste of the city. Neglected by the government, MAKOKO strives for a place in the fortune and future of the city on the effort of individuals who lend themselves to educating kids who otherwise would not have had any opportunity for formal education.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Femi Odugbemi, « MAKOKO: futures afloat » is a visually dramatic journey into a world beneath the poverty line and the struggle for a better tomorrow for their children.
