iREPRESENT International Documentary Film Festival 7th edition


The 7th edition of the IREPRESENT International Documentary Film Festival will hold from 16th-19th March 2017 at Freedom Park, Lagos with the theme "ARCHIVING AFRICA." Conceived on the traditional thematic framework of Africa in Self-Conversation, the IREP Film festival 2017 will rigorously explore the opportunities open to Africa to bring its historic past into an archival system that is accessible on demand, and most importantly, how we can begin to use these materials to define a path for the future through storytelling.
Africa has always been faced with a major challenge of connecting the dots in its historical past. A large part of what constitutes the verifiable history of Africa's past today is sourced from the west. The facts of our historical journey are told to us by western imperialists and we simply regurgitate what is made available to us. In an age when even technology is looking 'forward' into the past to understand what is most valuable to our humanity, many African societies are shrouded in a blanket of collective amnesia. Decades after the last of colonized society in Africa has gained independence, the legacy of European dominance remains - we must recourse to Europe to peep a glimpse of African history and cultural properties because they are mostly domiciled outside of the continent. Our history is ours in bits that is allowed to us from the West! Documentary/documentation films must respond to this, if it must by any chance, put a stop to the tragedy of forgetfulness in Africa. Storytelling is essential to nation building; each cultural property that is locked away in archives and museums in Europe is a repository of our history, journey and insights into what we can become.
Please make it a date!

Participation is free

A man troubled by his past deeds, falls in love with a lady suffering from a past occurrence.

Emma is an upwardly mobile guy being tormented by a trauma ...an incident that occurred years ago. As a former HIT MAN, he was involved in the shooting and killing of an average man, Damian and his three year old son, because the kid saw his face. Now after his inability to fall in love due to lack of
Internal peace, he finally comes across Lady, Esther...a new intake in his firm. He has to be a gentleman to the fullest in order to win her love.

He buys her gifts and tries beyond all means to see that she’s comfortable. But in spite of all his efforts, she doesn’t seem to show interest in him. There’s something about this lady that makes her so difficult and blunt, even though he still finds solace with her. Her love tree has been uprooted and her heart sealed, since the day her husband and three year old son were murdered in cold blood. However when Emma hits the limits of her defense with his care and love towards her, she decides it’s high time she put the past behind and move ahead.

But the day she makes up her mind to consider his proposal, becomes the day he comes across her with the picture of her late husband ...the same Damian he took out years ago. This is when she lets him in on her story ...enlightening him on how severe the impact of the loss of her husband and son has been. His heart breaks.

Now the past he was fleeing from, beholds him in the face, for even though his guilty conscience won’t allow him to be at peace with her, she now sees him as her only source of joy ...something she’s not had for long.
