Résumé anglais : Follows two Lagosians as they try to improve their families’ lives when tragedy and fate intervene. Eyimofe is a diptych that tells the story of two people’s quest for what they believe will be a better life in Europe.

Presented by GDN Studios the film was written by Chuko Esiri and produced by Melissa Adeyemo. It was a 2018 Purple List Award winner and one of ten projects chosen for last year’s IFP Narrative Lab in New York.

100% financed by Nigerian investors and shot on 16mm across Lagos State, Nigeria.

Described as the alternate migrant tale Eyimofe approaches a much-discussed topic from a new perspective; one in which we get to know who the people caught in raids and rescued from the sea are. Their dreams and desires. (The Guardian)
