Life at the Bay is a documentary put together by two ingenious women, Cinematographer Nora Awolowo and Journalist Kiki Mordi.
Their resolute concernment towards affairs about women is what drove them to take some step farther, recounting the travails of female residents at Tarkwa Bay; their struggle to survive, feed and all that jazz.
Tarkwa Bay is known for its beaches and it’s residents are an atypical representation of the mainstream impression about “the Island” in Lagos Nigeria.
In this documentary, Mordi and Awolowo remotely journeyed into villages to bring home the dreary realities of the Bay indwellers. These creatives audaciously went ahead to illuminate the realities that is blurred by the exhilarating activities that the Bay is mostly known for.
