Adeyemi Michael explores how it feels to be an Immigrant in short film “Entitled” | Watch



You’ve probably seen the photo on the internet: a woman in yellow iro and buba, a towering purple gele, seated gallantly atop a horse.

The photo was taken from a short film “Entitled” by British-Nigerian filmmaker Adeyemi Michael.

Amidst Britain’s planned exit from the European Union – Brexit – and the rising nationalist movement across the world, Adeyemi decided to explore what it is to be an immigrant.

The immigrant experience can be a jarring one, constantly straddling the line between two cultures.

The filmmaker approached it from a personal perspective: he reimagined his mother’s idea of moving from Nigeria to Peckham.

“Entitled” features Abosede Afolashade who narrates her experience as she rides on a horse, a talking drum playing in the background.
