Nsibidi Institute: A Personal History: Remi Vaughan-Richards

 

Summary:

Filmmaker Remi Vaughan-Richards shares the story of her father, a naturalised British architect credited with several Modernist buildings in Lagos in the 1960s, and her mother, a socialite and environmental activist who set up the first nursing school in Lagos. Considering the balancing act that weighs her parents’ legacy against her own ambitions as a filmmaker, Remi reflects on the value of archives, storytelling and a local sense of history.
