Chromista’s Chelsea Odufu Discusses The Work That Made Her

November 16, 2023

“The creative work that I keep coming back to is the film ‘Rebirth is Necessary’ by Nigerian director Jenn Nkiru. This film is like a magnetic force for me, pulling me in for repeated viewings. What strikes me most is its unapologetic, experimental, and futuristic approach, all while cleverly weaving in archival footage. It’s the kind of creative work that truly inspires me.”

CHROMISTA director Chelsea Odufu discusses Afrofuturism, the experimental side of filmmaking, and the directors who inspire her most in “The Work That Made Me.”
