In The Obituary of Tunde Johnson, a wealthy, Nigerian-American teenager is pulled over by police, shot, and immediately awakens, trapped in a terrifying time loop that forces him to confront difficult truths about his life and himself. Tackling the social issues of racism, police brutality, LGBTQ acceptance, mental health and addiction, The Obituary of Tunde Johnson confronts these seminal issues, all too prevalent in American society. A tense, gripping and smartly structured movie that defies genre and lingers in your mind days after you’ve seen it. It also effectively captures the unique pressures of being both Black and gay.
