“Sunflower”, by Kunmi Ogunsola, is a story about the relationship between a father and daughter. We see a young 25-year-old Ayomide (Danielle Rockson) who is struck with the news of her father, Bode’s (Dennis Gerald) sudden death. The whole situation is particularly difficult because Ayomide and her dad (Bode) had become estranged after a series of conflicts between them over the years. We then follow Ayomide over the course of a few days to see how she struggles to deal with her father’s loss and her unresolved issues with him.
This film is a commentary on the influence of positive affirmation and effective communication between parents and their children.
