Galway African Film Festival - Anchor Baby
Sunday, May 27, 2012 from 7:30 PM to 9:10 PM (BST)
Anchor Baby (cert: 12A)
93 min / Director: Lonzo Nzekwe / Nigeria 2010
Anchor Baby is an emotionally charged tale about the married, illegal immigrant couple Joyce (Omoni Oboli) and Paul Unanga (Sam Sarpong) who have been ordered by the U.S. immigration to leave the country. They decide that they will leave, but only after Joyce, who is five months pregnant, delivers her baby in the U.S. This will guarantee automatic U.S. citizenship for their child. Ignoring the deportation order the couple goes into hiding. Later, Paul is caught and deported by a team of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. Anchor Baby won multiple awards, amongst others it was awarded for the Best Film at the Harlem International Film Festival. This is a movie that is somewhat controversial in nature, and will keep you glued to your seat and guessing for the entire ninety-five minutes of the film.
