Three recent Nollywood shorts: The Knot, a love story with an interesting twist—the role Santeria plays in a destined relationship; Oblivious, in which a married man finds a new lover and asks his wife for a divorce, who says she would grant his request under one condition: he must carry her out of bed every day for a month; and The Encounter, a short film that documents the last encounter between the Biafran warlord Emeka Ojukwu and Ifeajuna, before the latter was executed for treason during the heat of the Biafran war.
