Following the book by Bob Om0tayo ( The Rennainsance Man), this short film documents a week in his life. The documentary follows a series of short stories from his book with the same title. The short film is a great introduction to contemporary Naija culture in the diaspora. If you haven’t grabbed your hands on the bock, the short film is worth a watch.
This 6-minute documentary, directed by LA-based filmmaker, Francesca Tilley-Gyado, is not so much a story of ‘the journey so far’ but more a snapshot into what a typical week is like for the author and contributors to the book. This documentary is testament that it is possible for a hopeless dreamer to dream in ‘flights of fancy’ but yet have his ‘flights’ for his singular critic.
