This documentary/short film is about life in Lagos, Nigeria. I've seen quite a few documentaries on one of the biggest slums in Africa, Makoko (which is in Lagos), but I like the fact that in this one there is no narration by a journalist.

If you feel strongly about circumstances in developing countries and are looking for some good references, this video shows a good fraction of reality.
