  1. Gidi Blues: A Lagos Love Story

    October 30, 2017, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

    Titled in tribute to the ‘Gidi’ essence of the city of Lagos and its inhabitants’ resilient spirit, Gidi Blues is the latest feature from celebrated Nigerian filmmaker Femi Odugbemi. Odugbemi uses the metropolis’ iconic locations, including Idumota market, Makoko, Victoria Island and Freedom Park, as a backdrop for his main character’s turbulent love story. It all starts with an accidental first encounter which makes it clear to Akin (Gideon Okeke) that his indulgent playboy approach will not be enough to win over a beautiful, committed and confident woman like Nkem (Hauwa Allahbura). NR / 103 min. Free to Attend. Presented by the Illinois State University Department of Sociology & Anthropology. Filmmaker Femi Odugbemi will be in attendance and will take part in a post-show conversation about the film and his incredible Nollywood career. (synopsis from
