The Legend of the Underground

About The Legend of the Underground

This film is a searing and timely look at the rampant discrimination that exists in Nigeria today, as seen through the lens of several charismatic, non-conformist youth who must choose either to fight for freedom of expression, or flee to live free in the United States. Through social media, celebrity and bold creativity, they spark a cultural debate that challenges the ideals of gender, conformity and civil rights in Nigeria.
