The Center for the Advancement of Multicultural Perspective on Social Sciences, Arts, and Humanities (CAMPSSAH), presents "Return to Chibok," directed by UC Davis professor of Cinema and Digital Media, Branwen Okpako. Adapting Helon Habila’s The Chibok Girls, this experimental documentary re-enacts his journey to Chibok to visit those left behind after the shocking kidnapping of 276 girls from Chibok Girls school in 2014. Actor Wale Ojo plays Habila alongside the community in Gombe State, who re-enact the original interviews. With daring complexity, this film invites audiences to listen, feel, empathize and meditate on one of the greatest challenges facing Nigeria today.

Presented in Hausa with English subtitles.
