Onyeka Igwe’s recent film “the names have changed, including my own and truths have been altered” (2019) explores the legacy of the artist’s grandfather, who is depicted, in an famous Igbo novel, performing a ritual to atone for his employer’s discretion of the land. This figure is fragmented both in history and in memory, and Igwe pieces together her own understanding of this story by exploring the sum of its parts. She examines archival images, personal recount, interviews with family members, exploration in moving image archives, representations in Nollywood dramas and embodiment through movement to unpack the many representations of this figure.
