Teco Benson | Nigeria 2002 | 1h30m | VHS | English | 18

The extraordinary symbiotic relationship between fundamentalist Christian evangelism and exploitation cinema with images which verge, and sometimes transcend the pornographic is no more impressively realised than in the films of Nigerian auteurs Teco Benson and Helen Ukpabio.

In this pre-Nollywood lo-fi video-film a sinner man, addicted to the flesh and the charms of big-legged women, is turned into a Tom Thumb by one of them who has wicked powers, and has to stare up her legs, longingly towards her pudenda, inside which he would get lost. Ukpabio turns up like the 7th Cavalry and all is made right again.

The AiM After Hours double bill will be introduced by South African writer, critic, director and actor Trevor Steele Taylor.
