In the 2021 Sundance Short Film Grand Jury Prize winner, a young girl stumbles upon secrets at her local church in Lagos.

Lizard sees an eight-year-old ejected from a Sunday school service, only for her to stumble upon some bizarre and unbelievable dealings happening behind the church’s closed doors. A high-stakes headtrip made more menacing by its eerie soundscape, Akinola Davies Jr’s latest film delivers a punchy eye-opener on the link between religion and riches, as well as the relativity of what constitutes sin.
