Project Description

Lagos At Large


A poetic essay and an uneasy love story, Lagos at Large is the praise to the biggest city in Nigeria of Poet Njideka who is the daughter of the Diaspora living in Austria. The short film draws a course for its audience through noise and urban chaos. The story we encounter on this journey becomes a real experience pressed with VR, and turns into a lyrical collage described in short chapters.
