Eyimofe (This Is My Desire) - Expat Cinema Rotterdam

Arie Esiri, Chuko Esiri

Miss seeing international films because you can’t yet keep up with the Dutch subtitles? Want to meet fellow expats and new Dutch folks? Love cinema? Then this is the event for you! Curated international films with English subtitles & meetup drinks afterwards.

Tragedy and fate intervene as two Nigerians try to better the lives of their families. Eyimofe (This Is My Desire) is a film about two people’s quest for what they believe will be a better life on foreign shores.

After Mofe loses his family and Rosa fails to deliver on a promise, their travel plans collapse, forcing them to reconsider living abroad. As time passes and wounds heal, they learn that the future they desperately seek can be built at home. Variety called Eyimofe (This Is My Desire) ‘a knockout’ and The The New Yorker wrote: ‘The film possesses a rare moral vision, in which goodness emerges not because of suffering but in spite of it.’
