Set in a vibrant, bustling Lagos, Nigeria, Eyimofe follows the separate lives and desires of Rosa, a hairdresser, and Mofe, a factory technician, two economically disadvantaged people who are bent on seeking better fortunes abroad. Shot on 16mm film and with a soundtrack that incorporates elements of Blues with Highlife guitars and riffs, it’s the debut feature film of co-directors and twin brothers, Arie and Chuko Esiri, by turns, dream-like and down-to-earth, rooted in the drudgery of daily life. It functions as a heart song for freedom, resilience, and the difficult choices we are often forced to make.
