God is African

  • Sometimes I think we are just too African-centric...

Set in the final months of 1995, at an university campus in Johannesburg. While most students are finishing up with their final exams, a Nigerian student tries to raise awareness about the pending execution of the Nigerian writer and activist, Ken Saro Wiwa. He hatches a plan to hijack the university radio station, and broadcast a program via cellphone to Nigeria. However, there are several problems in the way, including getting people to co-operate with his plan.

Ian Douglas: Hmmm this got off to a bad start, with terrible sound -- the characters sounded as if they were talking in a tunnel, and I had trouble figuring out what was going on. Took a while to realise that the setting was Nigerian students in Johannesburg, at a fictitious university. The storyline stumbled along, without the plot being clearly enunciated (or maybe I missed it), but eventually the action started to pick up a little, and they said some interesting things, which helped it to improve its rating. I think this film may appeal more to the black market here in South Africa, and the art crowd. YMMV.
