Nollywood Babylon

Nollywood Babylon chronicles the wild world of "Nollywood," a term coined in the early '90s to describe the world's fastest-growing national cinema, surpassed only by it Indian counterpart. The film delves first-hand into Nigeria's explosive homegrown movie industry, where Jesus and voodoo vie for screen time. undeterred by miniscule budgets, Da Guv'nor is one of the most influential men in Nollywood and one of the resourceful filmmakers creating a garish, imaginative, and wildly popular form of B-movie that has frenzied fans begging for more. Among the bustling stalls of Lago's Idumato market, films are sold, and budding stars are born. Creating stories that explore the growing battle between traditional mysticism and modern culture, good versus evil, witchcraft and Christianity, Nollywood auteur have mastered a down-and-dirty, straight-to video production formula that has become the industry standard in a country plagued by poverty. This burgeoning where proud Africans are telling their own stories to a public hungry to see their lives on screen.
