A screening of the film Island of Happiness followed by a discussion with Film Director Oneka Nwelue

Agwaetiti Obiụtọ (‘Island of Happiness’ in Igbo) is a satire focused on the lives of four friends who are drawn from their different lives by a promise, by Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), to pay the youth in their community (Oguta), of the Imo State, Nigeria. The narrative is centred on community relationship – how they come to fight against oppressors and imperialists. After the screening Film Director Onyeka Nwelue will discuss
with the audience. The screening is hosted in collaboration with the Dept. of Social Anthropology, Stockholm University
