Dir. Andrew Dosunmu | 2013, 107min
With Danai Gurira, Isaach De Bankole, Yaya Alafia, Tony Okungbowa, Bukky Ajayi, Angelique Kidjo
In English and Yoruba

“A stunning accomplishment”
—IndieWire

In a flurry of dazzling colors, textiles, music, and dance, Brooklyn restaurant owner Ayodele and his bride Adenike (Gurira) are married and ceremoniously blessed with traditional Nigerian prayers of fertility. Adenike struggles to conceive a child and with mounting pressure from her mother-in-law, she must take drastic measures to save her marriage. With sumptuous, spellbinding cinematography from Bradford Young (Pariah, Arrival), Andrew Dosunmu’s (Restless City) exquisite sophomore feature is an enlightening look at immigrant life, capturing the vibrant culture of Crown Heights’ Yoruba community.
