Folarin (Ozzy Agu) is a businessman with secrets: a Lagos-based investment banker with something to hide. Plagued by an alcohol problem and intermittent panic attacks, his life is turned upside down when his ethics are compromised over a controversial rail construction project.
As his relationship with his glamorous society wife Jumoke (Segilola Ogidan) unravels, he finds himself sinking deeper into an illegal high-stakes business deal. In an environment where corruption is the name of the game, will he jump over the edge or will he find redemption?
Narrated with suspense and intrigue, Over the Bridge is a rare treat from Nigeria, depicting the west African metropolis, Lagos as never seen before on the big screen.
A decade ago, I coined the term BEYOND NOLLYWOOD to refer to a new cinematic language emerging from Nigeria. BEYOND NOLLYWOOD presents the best artistic and culturally nuanced cinematic content from Africa’s most populous nation. It is a new filmmaking aesthetic that promises to act a bridge between West Africa and the rest of the world.
This one-off Picturehouse screening offers a unique opportunity for lovers of world cinema to see a rare big screen treat from the African continent.
Nadia Denton, BEYOND NOLLYWOOD Founder & Curator
We are delighted to support Picturehouse as they further diversify their programme and venture into showing films that speak to the ethos of Beyond Nollywood and push the boundaries of Nigerian cinema. With Nadia Denton's unmatched curatorial expertise at the helm of this collaboration, we cannot wait to share this modern, time-shifting tale of family and morals with UK audiences.
