There Were Two Brothers features the premiere screening of the names have changed including my own and truths have been altered, a new film work by Onyeka Igwe.

The work brings together three interconnected narratives – a story of the artist’s grandfather, one of ‘the land’, and another detailing an encounter with Nigeria – which the film  attempts to tell in as many ways as possible. This is accompanied by an installation of images, objects and soundscapes that relate to the central folk story that structures the film.
