Akwaeke Emezi is an Igbo/Tamil writer and video artist based in liminal spaces. She was Born in Umuahia and raised in Aba, Nigeria. In creating ‘Ududeagu’, Emezi wanted to invent a piece of visual mythology that examines loss and leaving from multiple perspectives. See more of her work here.
I am particularly interested in the way she use language, time, and personal mythology to sculpt this short.
