It’s Friday and you know it’s movie night! It’s been a long week, and so we are watching a Nigerian short film written, directed and edited by filmmaker Emeka Chukwuleta. Sticks and love is a 7-minute film which has sparked conversations since its release on Father’s Day. If you haven’t seen it yet, I’m here for you.
Lagos for me is a lot like that loud unattractive lover you can’t stand to be around too long, but are enamoured with regardless. The hustle and bustle in this concrete jungle is characterised by the unpleasant smell of what I like to think is the sea, crowds of people at bus-stops, and the constant riotous noise; a mix of blaring horns and shrilling voices. But, it’s Lagos, my place of love.
