On Culture and Immigration

British-Nigerian filmaker Adeyemi Michael says in his interview, “Mothers can do anything…they give birth, they build families, they build the world, …all our mothers are queens, and are leading the universe.” In his short film, Entitiled, he celebrates the “woman, the mother, the matriach, the immigrant,” He goes on to say that his family kept him rooted in his culture. “When you know where you belong, it doesn’t matter where you are. When you know where you’re from and you know where your roots are and you know what you stand for and you know what your culture is, you are enough.” What a beautiful sentiment.
