I JUST WATCHED AN AWESOME SHORT MOVIE - BARIGA SUGAR!
I saw a tweet about this short film "Bariga Sugar" and I almost dismissed it but I'm glad I didn't. It was 21 minutes 18 seconds well spent last night and I'm like...I can't enjoy this alone, I'll share my great finds with you! I loved it and hope they start a web series off of this! It's different and fresh and all the web series we have now are ....kind of like the same thing : love, marriage etc. Maybe it was the Ishan or the pidgin they were speaking that made me love it...I don't know.
The story is about Ese, a reclusive 8 year old girl living in Bariga Sugar - a ghetto brothel in Bariga, Lagos. Her mother Tina is one of Bariga Sugar's working women. 10 year old Jamil and his mother Hanatu move into the brothel, Ese and Jamil begin an unlikely friendship.
