About the Event
Join us for an exciting film screening of "Becoming Nigerian" as part of Seidea's inclusion series. This event will explore the essence of the Nigerian identity and the desire of Nigerian students abroad to find belonging. The film is made up of five episodes, each exploring different themes such as Essence, Honeymoon, Crisis, Adaptation, and Homecoming.
After the screening, we will have a Q&A session with the filmmaker, Emmanuel Johnson, to delve deeper into the themes presented in the film. At Seidea, we believe that discussing issues around immigration and being a minority is crucial in creating an inclusive community.
Emmanuel Effiong Johnson is a Nigerian researcher, filmmaker and poet. He has directed films such as To Grow a Tree, Parallel Identity and the upcoming film: Becoming Nigerian. He has also written his first poetry book which is soon to be published. He has recently completed his PhD programme at Coventry University, which explores Nigerian student experience and what it means to be educated. Emmanuel is committed to values of authenticity and accessibility across his works.
We invite you to join us for an evening of thought-provoking discussion, and a chance to connect with like-minded individuals. Let's explore the idea that "At the end of the day home is home" and how that resonates with us. Don't miss out on this unique and engaging event!
