FIGURE is an experimental film about boys growing up without fathers. It explores how early detachment from a father figure affects emotional growth and engagement with the world. Through a dynamic fusion of physical theatre and hip-hop dance, the film follows two young men as they search for answers both outside and inside themselves.
Created by Lanre Malaolu. Produced by Lorna Nickson Brown. Starring Nnabiko Ejimofor and Lanre Malaolu. With cinematography by Monika Jastrzebska and music by Mau Loseto.
