A HOTEL CALLED MEMORY UK PREMIERE + Intro with Nse Ikpe-Etim

Sat 03 Nov | 18:30 | BFI Southbank BOOKING SOON

Dir. Akin Omotoso

Nigeria, South Africa. 2017. 55 mins.
Omotoso’s bold experiment with tone and visual poetics is immersive and largely silent. In a stripped back performance Nollywood starlet Nse Ikpe-Etim softens into the carefully crafted soundscape and cinematography. Set in Lagos, Zanzibar, and Cape Town, we follow Lola as she grapples with an immense sense of failure from a broken marriage.
