EZRA is a factional tale inspired by the Sierra Leonean conflict. It is centred on one event: a drug fuelled atrocious attack on a village by rebel soldiers. The jigsaw puzzle of what occurred that night is reconstructed through the testimonies of three witnesses: Ezra, an ex-combatant, his mute sister Onitcha, and Cynthia, Ezra's fellow ex-soldier. As Onitcha begins to reveal secrets she has kept from her brother, what was supposed to be an arena for reconciliation soon becomes a trial. Nominated for the 2007 Sundance Film Festival Humaintas Prize and Grand Jury Prize.
