After travelling all over the world, screening at several festivals, picking up great reviews, awards and an international deal along the way, the romantic drama is set to make its Nigerian debut today, November 10, 2023.

Directed by Apalowo, All the Colours of the World Are Between Black and White tells the restrained and tender story of two men named Bambino and Bawa who meet in Lagos during a photography competition and immediately hit it off.

During long trips exploring the city, they develop a deep affection for each other. However, they have to deal with the pressure that comes with living in a society that is against homosexuality.

Written by Apalowo and produced by Damilola Orimogunje, the movie stars Tope Tedela, Riyo David, Martha Ehinome Orhiere, and Uchechika Elumelu.

Discussing the theme of the movie, the writer and director stated, “The main theme of the film is love, as it is a love story between two people, despite their sexual identities. The intention was to tell a simple love story that would be relatable to everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation. The themes of identity and self-discovery are also explored as Bambino, the main character, navigates his own past and seeks closure on events that have shaped him. The film is a reflection on love, identity, acceptance, and the complexities of navigating life as an outsider in a society that often rejects those who are different.”

Produced by Polymath Pictures, All the Colours of the World Are Between Black and White will screen this afternoon at AFRIFF, ahead of the closing movie Breath of Life later today.
