I still can’t believe that Amaka Vanni and I produced a feature documentary examining the survival of traditional culture in Nigeria and its contribution to political and socio-economic development. In Beyond Tolerance, we follow the lives of two young Nigerians adhering to the Ifa/Orisha worship system and find a community thriving in spite of negative stereotypes and discrimination.
Beyond Tolerance was screened in Lagos at the Aké Arts and Book Festival 2018 and in Abuja at the Thought Pyramid Art Centre. We couldn’t have done it without our amazing team and the support of Ifagbenusola Popoola, Ayinke Adefemi, Dubi Imevbore, Ike Nwakamma among others. See the trailer below.
If you’d like to screen Beyond Tolerance at your event or festival, feel free to contact me.
