Abstract:

Examines the burgeoning motion picture industry in Nigeria, most of which is shot on relatively small budgets with digital cameras. Also follows the shoot of an action-adventure movie (Check Point), whose cast and crew explain the movie-making process in Nigeria. 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 disks sell wildly all over the continent -- Nollywood actors have become stars from Ghana to Zambia. This Is Nollywood shows how the egalitarian promise of digital technology has found realization in one of the world's largest and poorest cities. And it shows the universal theme of people striving to fulfill their dreams.
