I & I: An African Allegory

dir. Ben Caldwell

TIFF Cinematheque - Black History Month

Skip to schedule and film credits
Drawing from Ayi Kwei Armah's novel Two Thousand Seasons, director Ben Caldwell meditates on reciprocity and on the concept of "I and I," which postulates no division between people, whereas the splitting of "you" from "I" is an invention of the devil designed to brew trouble in the world.
