A film by Lanre Malaolu
FIGURE is an experimental film about boys growing up without fathers. It explores how early detachment from a father figure affects emotional growth and engagement with the world. Through a dynamic fusion of physical theatre and hip-hop dance, FIGURE follows two young men as they search for answers both outside and inside themselves.
