Praise for Walking with Shadows

"Aoife O’Kelly’s articulate and sensitive film deftly discards the sensational for a depiction of queer Nigeria presented with care and incisive observation. The film is anchored by heartfelt performances from Ozzy Agu and Zainab Balogun as Ada, Adrian’s wife" 

BFI.

 

"Writer/director Aoife O’Kelly’s adaptation of Jude Dibia’s groundbreaking 2005 novel feels like a throwback to sincere, social issue dramas of the 1960s // O’Kelly’s very polished production successfully works against the notion that this may seem dated to some audiences"
