Nigerian premiere of “Elder’s Corner” holds at Alliance Francaise during AFRIFF

Elder’s Corner, a feature documentary which has been described as voyage of return and rediscovery, an epic tale of survival, using music to reconnect the past to the present, is set for a Nigerian premiere.

Venue is Alliance Francaise, Mike Adenuga Centre, 9 Osborne Road, Ikoyi, Lagos on Friday, November 11 as part of this year’s Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF) taking place at the Landmark Centre, Lekki, Lagos, Nigeria from November 5 to 12.

Time is 4.55 pm to 6 pm.

The 97-minute 2020 documentary directed by Siji Awoyinka focuses on some of Africa’s most prominent musical movements Nigerian musicians have spearheaded from the colourful, celebratory sounds of Juju to the politicised urgency of Afrobeat. How oftentimes, their work formed the backdrop against which the nation blossomed. 

At its heart, Elder’s Corner is not only a voyage of return and discovery, it’s an epic tale of survival and the undeniable power of music to reconnect the present.
