    Sade Adeniran

    Screenwriter & Novelist

    Adeniran is currently developing an adapted version of her novel, which reached the second round of the Sundance Screenwriters Lab, and won the British Urban Film Festival Award for Best Script Talent. Told through her diaries, Imagine This chronicles 10 years of the life of Lola, who is sent as a nine-year-old from her home in London to live with relatives in Nigeria. In answer to whether the story is autobiographical, Adeniran says her response is always: "'It is and it isn’t’. Some things in the book are based on real incidents. That village was where I grew up, but what happens to the character Lola is not what happened to me." The novel won the 2008 Commonwealth Writers' Prize for Best First Book (African region), and was shortlisted for the World Book Day "Books to Talk About" award. It was published by Cassava Republic Press in 2011.

Event Details

Come join us as award-winning screenwriter and director Sade Adeniran will talk about her journey across cultures and industries. She will be screening two short films which have brought her national and international attention: My Mother’s Journey (2016) which won Best Script at the UK Parliamentary competition, Film The House, and My Mother’s Stew (2018) which was an official selection at the 2018 International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR).

My Mother’s Stew:

A young woman stands outside the front door of the family home and the smell of her favourite stew reminds her of happy memories from her childhood. Can she reconcile that period of innocence before her life was shattered by some devastating family news?

My Mother’s Journey:

As a child, Lola Ogunwole was abandoned by her mother.  Now a mother herself, and suffering from postnatal depression, will Lola finally heal the hidden scars by meeting the woman who left her?  
Or is she destined to repeat the cycle and sins from a childhood she’d rather forget?

On stage, she will be joined on stage by fellow director and Award-winner Evy Barry.

Meet peers and fellow professionals, chat, exchange details, collaborate and most of all, have fun!
