|THIS IS NOLLYWOOD (54' & 70')
Horizontal Sub Menu Css3Menu.com
This Is Nollywood tells the story of the Nigerian film
industry, a revolution enabling Africans with few
resources to tell African stories to African audiences.
Despite all odds, Nigerian directors produce between 500
and 1,000 movies a year.
The larger Nollywood story is intercut
with the struggle of director Bond Emeruwa to complete a
feature-length action film in just 9 days on the outskirts
of Lagos. Armed only with a digital camera, two lights,
and about $20,000, Bond faces challenges unimaginable in
Hollywood and Bollywood. Will he make it?
As Bond says, ?In Nollywood we don?t
count the walls. We learn how to climb them. We are
telling our own stories in our own way, the African way,?
Bond says. ?I cannot tell the white man's story. I don't
know what his story is all about. He tells me his story in
his movies. I want him to see my stories too.?
Bond is just one of the incredible
protagonists of Nollywood, Nigeria?s burgeoning but
little-known movie industry that is rapidly changing
Africa's modern popular culture.
