Take Light | Shasha Nakhai | Nigeria | 2018 | 58 min
Amid the tangled wires of Nigeria’s energy crisis, hope flickers. Power means everything in Nigeria, Africa’s biggest oil producer. Yet less than 50 percent of its citizens have access to electricity. Take Light explores the streets of an oil-refining city to meet workers who toil on the frontlines of the grid. Their stories create a complex portrait of Nigerian society that audiences rarely get to see.
