The Apo Mechanics Village

As an outsider, it's possible to look at Nigeria in two ways. You can scoff because nothing is done 'properly' like it is back home, or you can can marvel at the energy, spirit and ingenuity. I choose the latter approach.

This is a short film about the Apo Mechanics Village just outside of Abuja. No one can keep a car running for longer than these guys.

Filmed by Jolyon Hoff, Sound by Agu C.J. and edited by the ever talented Naheed Bilgrami.
