Collab: Lagos (2021)
Directed by Kene Nwatu


Holding onto an idea gives one complete control of something small... Through collaboration anyway, we allow others to bring all their small ideas, blending it with ours, and we together harness them all into something larger, often times more than we could ever imagine. Collaboration as a form of expression in creativity is often overlooked and underrated when success stories are discussed. This undermines the many moving parts that come together to make a person, brand or product. Through this documentary series, we explore the inner workings of a variety of collectives, groups or whatever you may decided to call them, unearthing the multiple avenues, values and so forth, that contribute in making many of these visions possible; hopefully lending more insight to others that may not understand the true essence of the art of collaboration.
