About this product
- DescriptionForeign Gods, Inc., tells the story of Ike, a New York-based Nigerian cab driver who sets out to steal the statue of an ancient war deity from his home village and sell it to a New York gallery. A meditation on the dreams, promises and frustrations of immigrant life; the nature and impact of religious conflicts; and the ways in which modern culture creates or heightens infatuation with the 'exotic', Foreign Gods Inc. illuminates a globally interconnected world like other.
