Why watch this film?
'Elesin Oba: The King's Horseman' is a Nigerian film that was part of the official selection of the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival. A great story adapted from Wole Soyinka's play 'Death and the King's Horseman', which takes us into the tangled web of an internal opinion on the discussion of modernity and traditions. Odunlade Adekola (Elesin) delivers a striking performance that will sweeten, captivate and fill you with nostalgia with each of his moments on screen. A beautiful look at African cinema.
After his king dies, a horseman must sacrifice himself to serve his ruler in the afterlife but sudden distractions lead to unexpected tragedy.
