The Influence of Paintings

Early on in the film, there’s a scene in which Adenike is given a piece of jewelry to wear that helps with fertility. Darkly lit with hints of blue and silver, the look of the scene was inspired by a Byzantine-era painting of an African ceremony. Dosunmu had seen the painting in a Houston museum and wanted to project that canvas onto the screen. He was also heavily influenced by contemporary painters Chris Ofili and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
