NO MORE WINGS Award Winning Director Abraham Adeyemi’s 5Ws & H Interview – Part 2 of 3

Beatific and surrealistic, scene-segues of the older Issac & Jude to the younger Issac & Jude and back, glow effervescently, figuratively speaking. These weren’t flashbacks, that was for sure. At the time of the interview, however, the writer-reviewer was fumbling, like a misfiring engine, with questions about what he had seen. The director resolved his dismay.

NO MORE WINGS Award Winning Director Abraham Adeyemi’s 5Ws & H Interview – Part 1 of 3

NO MORE WINGS Award Winning Director Abraham Adeyemi: “I always had this story [in mind], that I’d always thought was really good. And I didn’t have a script, but I just always thought to myself, if I write a story about these two people, who, growing up in the exact same way, but their lives have turned out very differently, what would that look like. If they’re meeting, where would they meet up? What’s the one thing that keeps them together? And it’s this chicken shop.”

Tribeca Film Festival 2020 Short, NO MORE WINGS Film Review – Interview with Director Abraham Adeyemi Coming Soon

No More Wings Tribeca Film Festival 2020 Winnger

NO MORE WINGS is 10 evocative minutes of eloquent story telling with poetic panache and a visceral and intellectual resonance lasting long after the film ends. It tells of two 20-plus-somethings meeting-up for a fav repast of six wings and chips in Morley’s, a South London fried chicken shop. Issac and Jude are savvy, down-to-earth no-nonsense class acts with a dash of chutzpah. You will want to see this film more than once.

Article, review in the works.
