‘Being rendered visible is an 18th century African maidservant of the Georgian House, Bristol and her maternal lineage. This film transcends in the universality of marginalised, abused, lives of women ..

Raised in 2017 in Bristol UK to mark 250 years of the birth of Fanny Coker, enslaved on a sugar plantation in Nevis, DAUGHTERS OF IGBO WOMAN is a collaborative, digital memorial tribute comprising a trilogy of digital shorts shot in landscapes of South East Nigeria, St Kitts & Nevis & Bristol UK with writers and artists:  Prof Akachi Ezeigbo & Sam Osajie (Nigeria), Vida Rawlins (St Kitts & Nevis) & Ros Martin Bristol UK. We honour and restore a family’s lineage that has been broken; we give voice to three generations of African women, their lives torn apart by the inhumanity of the transatlantic slave trade.’ R. Martin
