Joy & Sexy Money
Fr, Nov. 27 @ 4:30pm   Chapel, Teachers College

In recent years, a growing group of illegal prostitutes from West Africa has settled in the suburbs of major cities both in the Netherlands and in the rest of Europe. The women go there in order to escape poverty, but for most of them, the European adventure is a disappointment that ends when they fly back to Nigeria empty-handed. The film listens to these women talk about their European adventure and shows the development of two women who, after returning to Nigeria, try to build a new life. There are countless obstacles. Time and again they are confronted with a merciless society in which there seems to be no room for them.  The film is not only a plea for their resilience but also an expression of it. Music, as a source, pleasure and beauty plays an important role in the lives of women and also in the film, with songs especially composed for it by Nneka, one of Nigeria's best singer/songwriters. Directed by Karin Junger, 2014, 85 min, Nigeria/Netherlands, documentary, English
