About the DirectorS

Nengi Nelson is a human being first and then a visual artist. She uses film and photography primarily to interrogate ideas around identity, choice and vulnerability. She especially loves to represent these stories in monochrome as they help her strip the noise enough for her and her audience to focus on the subjects.

Nosazemen Agbontaen is an artist who is interested in exploring narratives via absurdism, experimenting with boundaries, and creating alternative world views through various art forms.
