Rántí (“remember”) is an exploration of the void that follows a move away from the home one has always known. The filmmaker - with the voices of her matriarchs - explores her recent move to Montreal in light of her family’s history of migration from Nigeria to Canada. She resonates with that experience by themes of loneliness and longing, and the communication technology that tethers one to the people and places they love. Through this, she discovers what it means to follow in their footsteps, while treading a path of her own.
