Waving Flag [Dallas Screening]

You are cordially invited to the Dallas screening of my documentary ‘Waving Flag’. In an effort to celebrate the rich culture of Africans all over the world as well as bridge the gap between their ‘African-American’ counterparts (view the trailer below).

As a young Nigerian I grew tired of the negative, inaccurate, and biased portrayals Western media showed of Nigeria and Africa as a whole. The media would have people believe we are an uneducated, uncivilized, undeveloped nation. We can sit around and complain about the unfair portrayal, but if we do nothing to incite change we will never be better. Chinua Achebe said, “If you don’t like someone’s story, write your own.” This is what we have set out to do. In the movie we interviewed a wide variety of Nigerians about their life experiences before coming to America, first impressions of the US, and hope for the future of Nigeria.

The unveiling of this documentary is set for Saturday October 1, 2011 to coincide with Nigeria’s 51st Independence Day celebration and will be a major part of a weekend lineup of Nigerian Independence events. Log on to WAVING FLAG TICKETS for pre sale tickets to the premiere or http://www.dallasnigeriaindependence.com for more information on the events going on through the weekend.

Saturday, October 1, 2011 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PT)
