Mordecai & Margaret have both sought refuge in London from the political unrest in Nigeria. Their lives are punctuated by television newsreel of the capture and then state execution of Ken Saro-Wiwa, a political activist in their home country of Nigeria. The flickering light from the television and chilling soundtrack suggests at once the poetic and the banality of their lives. While outside their tenement flat, the chaotic streets of Brixton press in on their isolation.
One Sunday Morning is a striking, unforgettable film that casts the plight of asylum seekers in a humane light without moralizing or ranting.
