Naij, A History of Nigeria

It seems that the Naija Documentary I blogged about last year here is back and its bigger and better. For those who didn't get to see it, it was a three hour film of original footage from Nigeria's history featuring archival footage from Fela (he exposed his buttocks to camera to prove police brutality), Abiola - being interviewed while he was being arrested in the imprisonment that preceded his death, Major Nzeogwu - the day after the 1966 coup where he talks about killing the senior officers while they hid behind women and children. If you have the Saturday to spare, try and catch it on Saturday 10 May from 12.30pm-5.15pm -yes its now 4 and a half hours long, when I watched it last year they supplied free drinks and snacks too!

Film: Naij, A History of Nigeria plus Q & A with Jide Olanrewaju
Museum in Docklands, West India Quay (Docklands Light Railway)
Free entry: first come, first served

Corruption, Mismanagement, Fraud,War are the stereotypical views of Nigeria and indeed Africa as a whole.This block-busting film explodes the mis-education and stereotypes and puts the country we now call Nigeria into context. This is the best film on African history and politics you will see this year. If you've ever asked yourself "why is Africa the way it is?" the answers are here.

Topics covered...
How the British fixed the elections, "Nigeria" does not exist, How Europeans encouraged civil war, The Role and Rise of the Army, The City of London = Corruption Head Office, Creating poverty as a means of control
