Sojourners

Jeremy's work for Sojourner's consisted of diegetic "match cuts" that linked scenes of different environments to each other.  As the revolving set turns, music from a living room radio becomes muffled behind a wall and then to a distant car pulling away from a gas station. Alarm clocks morph to original bell rhythms inspired by the carnival music of Nigeria's Ibibio culture  and then to the pneumatic sounds of a gas station and so forth. 

Abasiama came to America with high hopes—for her arranged marriage and for her future—intent on earning a degree and returning to Nigeria. But when her husband is seduced by America, she must choose between the Nigerian and the American dream.
