I'd be interested in your comments on this film. For me, no matter that it is well done, it does little other than repeat the cliches that everyone knows. That doesn't mean to say the interviewees are not dealing in social truths: the Yoruba thrive on complexity and ambiguity, the Igbo universe centres on trade and money and the Hausa live in a world structured by Islam. But there is so much more to be said than this. It would have been more interesting to interview members of smaller ethnic groups, rather than rigorously enforce the triangulation..
