Contemporary Film: Under the Influence of a Dogma

A surreal comedy about a Nigerian security guard who wakes up one morning to find he’s become an ancestral spirit.

The Lost Okoroshi, directed by Abba Makama. Nigeria, 2019. 94’

Abba Makama’s surreal odyssey reflects on Nigerian identity, the eagerness of Lagos’s youth to embrace Western culture, and their disinterest and ignorance of the beliefs and religious practices of their ancestors.
