Ola Ola

Ola Ola

Two Nigerian cousins have a meditative evening and discuss the prospect of leaving New York. Adesola Thomas directs “Ola Ola,” a small-scale conversational piece that offers a tender specificity in the identities and relationship of its two characters. For Abisola, it starts as a quiet evening. When her cousin, Mojisola, leaves a nearby party with a dead phone battery and broken shoes, she looks for a place to crash. Abisola welcomes the visit, and the two catch up over a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. In free-flowing conversation, they discuss the frustrations of city-living and subtle feelings of obligation toward their immigrant parents. Formally low-key, the film is an intimate portrait of first generation American characters and their metropolis qualms. -JM. Writer & Director: Adesola Thomas. Cast: Adesola Thomas and Teniola Amos.
