Sorry, this online screening is not available in your country.


This visually arresting Nigerian short follows Obi, a bored boy trying to provoke the silent world of adults surrounding him in the village into a reaction. Technically astounding, excellently written, and featuring unforgettable child performances, this brief tale of fathers and sons asks the audience to ponder on a range of significant topics surrounding war, trauma and childhood.

Troublemaker will be free to watch online for the duration of the festival. 

Director Olive Nwosu will take part in a live online panel discussion on Monday 16 November. Read an interview with Olive Nwosu here
