Blaxites is a film that follows the story of a young woman whose celebratory social media post affects her access to vital medication. Her attempts to circumvent the system leads to even more dire consequences. In Blaxites, we highlight issues that arise when different data systems are connected.

In ancient Yoruba folk tales, there is particular wonder around "Ado Ato" — containers of magical spells. Like this container, our studio encapsulates magic by bringing innovative content to the screen. Following an ambition to produce the unexpected, our team approaches creation with a pioneering spirit, always pushing to compose the most diverse and engaging storytelling geared to audiences who crave fresh, boundary-pushing, and meaningful experiences.

Our award-winning work has been seen from Annecy and Sheffield DocFest to Frameline and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Through our global network of directors and creators, we produce and deliver authentic, daring, and impactful projects with a broad reach. As a hybrid production company and collective, we create our own projects, serve clients around the world, and provide consulting services.
