The Legend Of The Underground (Full Ver)

After 57 men are arrested for what Lagos police alleged was a “gay initiation party,” the city’s underground nonconforming scene joins forces with Nigerian asylum seekers in New York City to fight for freedom of expression. Codirected by Nneka Onuorah (The Same Difference) and Giselle Bailey (Burn the House Down), The Legend of the Underground uncovers rampant discrimination in Nigeria through the eyes of several charismatic young people grappling with the decision to search for a safe haven abroad or stay to fight a system that seeks to silence them. Vibrant and timely, the film looks at a resilient community as they leverage social media, celebrity, and bold creativity to spark a cultural revolution against state-endorsed discrimination while celebrating who they are.
