The Spinoff – NAIJA BETA

We made a second film, NAIJA BETA, from a story we discovered while making ONE DAY I TOO GO FLY: that of Nigerian MIT students bringing technology to high-schoolers in Nigeria through a robotics summer camp. While One Day I Too Go Fly follows African youths leaving home to explore the world, NAIJA BETA follows African youths in the diaspora returning to reconnect with societies back home.
