18A | Homophobic Violence. Scenes depicting graphic homophobic violence.

Bambino is a delivery driver in Lagos, living a quiet life and holding his neighbours at arm’s length. When he meets Bawa, a friendly and easygoing photographer, something clicks. But in a country where homosexuality is illegal and taboo, Bambino doesn’t know what to do with their connection; judging by the life choices of his friend Ifeyinwa, the options seem limited. The subtly and restraint in Babatunde Apalowo’s much-lauded debut feature is part of its power to move audiences. He creates characters that feel like real people, and we fear for them and cheer for them as they find their way.
