In 2015, a local team launched an intense encounter with the Nigerian National Film, Video and Sound Archive to reclaim its half-forgotten materials. Since these beginnings, the work has expanded and collaborations with partners such as the Arsenal – Institut für Film und Videokunst were developed. Didi Cheeka from the Lagos Film Society provides an insight into the ongoing work with Nigerian film heritage to consider lessons, achievements, challenges and prospects of past and future.
