A Conversation with Merawi Gerima
Los Angeles Filmforum presents Merawi Gerima and Chrystel Oloukoi in conversation discussing Gerimas film Residue. Gerimas film, semi-autobiographical and made with almost no-budget, defies easy categorization. Memory, loss, love, gentrification, and the remnants of the carceral system are part of the films unique orbit.

Written and directed by Merawi Gerima, RESIDUE follows aspiring filmmaker Jay (Obinna Nwachukwu) returning to his childhood Washington, DC, neighborhood that has been gentrified beyond recognition. Dealing with alienation from his friends, troubled by the disappearance of his best friend, and unsure of his place in this new community, Jay confronts issues of identity, gentrification and loss.



Merawi Gerima is a filmmaker from Washington DC. This origin informs his work and his community-centered orientation. RESIDUE, his first feature, was a total communal endeavor, made possible primarily by the effort of the people it attempts to portray.  Following its world premiere at the Slamdance Film Festival, RESIDUE was honored with the festival's Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature and the Acting Award for star Obinna Nwachukwu. RESIDUE is also an official selection of the 77th Venice International Film Festivals Giornate degli Autori. Gerima is a graduate from the University of Southern California (USC) School of Cinematic Arts (SCA). He is the son of celebrated Ethiopian filmmaker Haile Gerima, a legendary figure in the L.A. Rebellion film movement and filmmaker Shirikiana Aina, who also appears in the film.

Chrystel Oloukoi is a PhD student, a curator for the Is That Jazz Lagos Movie Club, and a film critic. Her work has appeared in Sight and Sound and BFI.
