Filmmaking Without Borders: Award-winning writer/director Sade Adeniran on filmmaking without constraints

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!
