By Alvan Chinaka 2 months ago
When one looses touch with their history and trails of existence, they tend to invite extinction and the younger sister oblivion to an eternal dinner.
Amarachi is a lady who has refused to loose grasp of her existence, history, culture and tradition of her people as she takes bold steps to tell the story of her people, as well as things that they believe and live for through poems and documentaries.
In her quest to project and refresh to the mind, the events of the Biafran / Nigerian civil war, she presents to us a piece she called OGBUNIGWE.
OGBUNIGWE ( Voices of Wounded Biafra Veterans ), is a poetic film documentary where Amarachi spoke to the wounded Biafra Veterans at Oji River in Enugu State and Okwe, in Imo State as they narrated about their life during and after the Biafran war which took place 51 years ago.
On this documentary, you will find out how they have been able to survive and navigate through the trauma and injury since the war ended as she also presents a poetic piece about the veterans in this documentary film.
Who is Amarachi?
Amarachi is an Igbo performance Poet who has carved a niche for herself in Igbo poetry
Just last year, she ventured into a brand of Documentary Film Production which she called Poetic Documentary. On that mission, she released BỊAFỤRỤ in July 2018 which went viral. Upon going viral, Amarachi didn't allow her lighted splint to fade as she is set to release another documentary called OGBUNIGWE this July 2019 on the wounded Biafra Veterans. Oh, her love for July.
Amarachi, a strong and outstanding advocate of Igbo language and the host of the cultural festival known as ỌJA Cultural Festival, having put all these great works of art together, is inviting all her friends and well wishers alongside the lovers of arts and culture on 20th July, in the city of London to be a part of what she tagged MGBEDE ỌMA.
Adding colours to this, MGBEDE OMA will be an evening of live Performance, Film Screening, Question & Answer Session and Dance with Amarachi Attamah.
On this epoch making event, you will know what drives Amarachi as you will also have a first hand detail of the Biafran heroes and their stories.
It's indeed going to be MGBEDE OMA - A Wonderful Evening
