What's in a Name?

12:00am - 12:30am

For most, introducing ourselves becomes second nature early in life. Names are not things we think twice about. But if you ask anybody, their name probably has a meaning and a backstory. For some reason or another, these backstories have been neglected — collecting dust in the back of our brains. This documentary explores the family name of Vancouver-based artist, Joshua Badu, to uncover how much profundity a name can hold. Let’s sweep the dust off the story of “Badu” and ask: what’s in a name?
