OGBUNIGWE (The Trailer)
Ogbunigwe is a poetic documentary of the abandoned heroes of the Biafran war whose war efforts and memory is being condemned to the ogreish jaws of oblivion.
The Igbo poet and soloist, Amarachi Attamah, known for her penchant in excavating forgotten history, locates these veterans who are now street beggars, haven being chased out from relief centres and dumped at some unwholesome place around Oji River.
In this documentary, Amarachi takes us up on the question of how we treat our heroes, especially now that the Biafra agitation has returned to the front burners.
Watch out for this engaging work as it is set to hit the internet through the stables of Nwadioramma TV on YouTube on the 25th of May, 2020.
