History is the past as it is described in written documents, and the study thereof. However, when you take a great book like Tunde Leye’s Afonja: The Rise, sprinkle in performers who know their craft and ‘stage’ it at the Amphitheatre at serene Freedom Park, what you get is a night to remember. It is the SPECIAL ARTHOUSE FORUM, meant for only special people. One has to be present at LABAF to experience it firsthand.
The epic documentary which is a documentary adaptation of the books “A Platter of Gold: Making Nigeria (1906-1960)” and “Possessed: A History of the Crown Colony of Lagos (1861-1906)”, by Supo Shasore will dive into an in-depth analysis of the Republic in the grasp of colonialism.
“A Platter of Gold: An Untold Nigeria” is a first in epic storytelling by Quramo Productions and isn’t just for historians or cinephiles, it is entertainment for all curious minds of any persuasion,” stated a post on the Quramo Publishing Twitter page.
The documentary screening of
“A Platter of Gold: An Untold Nigeria” will take place on Wednesday, 30 October 2019.
To be part of the event, you can order your tickets at QBookCafe Victoria Island, Lagos.
