Elder's Corner (2020)

Presented by Africadelic

Short: No Archive Can Restore You / Intro: Coco Olakunle

After the sold out premiere in July, we offer another chance to see the historical music documentary Elder's Corner on the big screen, a film showcasing the lives and work of Nigeria's pioneering musicians. When Siji Awoyinka, a young London-born Nigerian music fan, makes the shocking discovery that many Nigerian musical icons don’t possess copies of their own recordings, he returns to Lagos to re-record them. This film chronicles the music – from juju to Afrobeat and everything in between – and its parallels to Nigeria’s socio-political evolution from the colonial 1950s through the nationalist movement and independence in the ’60s. Rare archival footage colors this performance-rich tour through the history of the nation’s music.

The film is introduced by Nigerian-Dutch photographer, Coco Olakunle, and preceded by the Nigerian short film No Archive Can Restore You (2020).
