Coconut Head Generation

by Alain KASSANDA

6_web

At the Ibadan university in Nigeria, students have founded a film-club, a true agora where issues are tackled face-on and not without humour. Alain Kassanda precisely films the debates’ organisation and sessions, the interventions, namely that of a young photographer who has documented the students of Lagos’ living conditions. His sustained attention to this open, cultivated, drafted youth who wish to be called by the derogatory term “coconut head” takes him into the streets of Ibadan and to certain severely repressed demonstrations by the End SARS movement (against police brutality), where the need to struggle, conjured by the films, decisively becomes part of the students’ lives.
