“This is Lagos”

The story centers around an aspiring rapper Stevo, needing quick cash for studio time, and works for the psychotic Kojack and his ‘shoot-rob-run’ gang. When the escape from a heist goes bad, Stevo is separated from the gang. Luckily, he’s the one carrying the loot.


Classmates have always been baffled by Mojisola’s unquenchable thirst and oddness, Opeyemi professes his love for her and her love for him. After their first kiss, Opeyemi comes down with an unexplainable life-threatening illness. With information from a bestselling paranormal scientist, Mojisola must go on a quest to save him. It is a modern Nigerian paranormal love story rooted in urban myth and folklore.

This year’s film festival features over 200 films from 54 countries, in 28 languages, including 68 World and 25 North American premieres.
