Showreel Dwight Fagbamila 2018

Dwight graduated from the AKV St. Joost film school in 2016. He made the impressive film Babatunde, which received great critiques. Together with Ashar Medina he wrote Rêverie and he is currently working on his first feature film Femi, about the broken Omar who needs to deal with his father who died at a young age before his own child is born.
ARTIST STATEMENT 'I'm very interested in the impact ancestry and our parents have on us, aware and unaware. The psychology of humans within these issues are the main priority and the narrative builds around it. As the son of a Dutch white mother and a Nigerian black father I know what it feels like to grow up in between cultures and to feel that you don't really belong anywhere. In Europe I'm black, in Africa I'm white. This pressing contradiction is the core of the research that forms an important theme of my work.'
