Film: Gidi Blues

Odugbemi’s most recent feature is a buoyant romantic comedy set against the diverse metropolis of Lagos. Akin is a wealthy playboy content to live off his mother forever, but his course is altered when he retrieves the stolen purse of Nkem, a community volunteer in the impoverished village of Makoko (as featured in the documentary program). She offers him a glimpse of a better life, but can he become a man worthy of her? Odugbemi deftly weaves class difference into the film, fulfilling his mission to “entertain within a context.” Reception begins at 5:30pm. In person: Femi Odugbemi.   Type: Visual Arts.
