Director’s Statement

This is a personal film that narrates the life of Iquo, my nephew, leading up to his 9th birthday. Born out of wedlock and devoid of a father, Iquo is one of the many children who have to learn to navigate and process family traditions and roles while undergoing the critical milestones in his childhood. This film also shows how Iquo’s presence has shaped our family’s dynamics and every member’s way of dealing with the situation. 

This film offers a perspective on how children, like my nephew, view the world from their perspective. Children do have an equally significant voice when discussing family issues and problems.
