A 6 minute short documentary about the popular collection of short stories, London Life, Lagos Living by author, Bobo Omotayo. His words below...
Seven months ago today, I released the most soul bearing endeavour I had ever engaged in my life. The result was a 196-page treatise titled ‘London Life, Lagos Living’. Initially apprehensive as to the likely public response, I am daily humbled by the public embrace of this labour of love by the reading public.A couple of thousand copies later, I am astounded by the depth of feedback from readers, who effuse about how the book has in some way or the other made them laugh, reflect, reason and more.
This 6-minute documentary, directed by LA-based filmmaker, Francesca Tilley-Gyado, is not so much a story of 'the journey so far' but more a snapshot into what a typical week is like for the author and contributors to the book. This documentary is testament that it is possible for a hopeless dreamer to dream in ‘flights of fancy’ but yet have his 'flights' for his singular critic.
This is a toast to infinite possibilities.
