Welcome To Nollywood
Welcome To Nollywood provides a fascinating look into the newly emerging Nigerian film industry, exploring its inner workings and introducing viewers to Nollywood's passionate auteurs. Through clips and on-set visits, we meet Chico Ejiro, aka "Mr. Prolific," a filmmaker who has made over a hundred films. We follow the production of an epic war film by Izu Ojukwu, a young Nollywood director who is known for his high intensity action films. Both directors battle limited budgets, frequent power outages, mutinous casts, and none of the infrastructure that supports other national cinemas. Welcome To Nollywood takes a celebratory and often humorous look at this unique phenomenon that is transforming cinema in Africa and worldwide.
