Save My Lost Nigga' Soul

Canada, 1993 (MIFF 1994, Fiction)

Director: Clement Virgo

The saga of a budding stand-up comic. But there's not much to laugh about when you come from 'the wrong side of Eden', and your brother has a blossoming drug addiction. This film traverses the difficulties experienced as a family falls apart and shows that the conundrum of family habits is as potent and destructive as substance abuse. If blood is thicker than water then this gritty tale proves that heroin can be thicker than blood.
