Homecoming—a fantasy short (2013)
Fantasy, science fiction and infatuation fuse as an obsessed neighbour invents ever-stranger scenarios for wooing the girl of his dreams.
Homecoming is Jim Chuchu's first narrative short film, and one of six short fiction films from the African Metropolis series, a unique partnership towards new African cinema. The films from Abidjan, Cairo, Dakar, Johannesburg, Lagos and Nairobi tell urban tales about life in African metropolises. The African Metropolis Short Film Project is an initiative of the Goethe-Institut South Africa and executive producer Steven Markovitz, with support from Guaranty Trust Bank and the Hubert Bals Fund of International Film Festival Rotterdam.
