The Champion Sportsman
Features: Patience Ozorkor, Sandra Achums, John Okafor, Stephen Lohse, Andy Edelbut, Mimi Beaufort- Spontin
The Champion Sportsman is a Nollywood movie realized in a very special and unusual Nigerian-German co-production. It is a unique initiative of the Nigerian writer, producer and film director Azubuike Erinugha and
the German artists network InterArte and will be realised in some parts in cooperation with the Braunschweig University of Art. It will be shot-mainly in Berlin, only partly in Enugu and Lagos.
The aim of the project is to approach and reflect the complexities of migration in a way, which confronts clichés and offers divergent perspectives on the issue. The focus is split, on high-pitched African expectations of
a life in Europe and on the humiliating European politics against African migrants as well.
