Not just another film screening

Nollywood2

There aren’t any jaded directors in Nollywood. Spirited and optimistic more appropriately describe Nigeria’s booming film industry as seen in NOLLYWOOD BABYLON, a documentary that follows its most important filmmakers as they battle low budgets and low technology to create “stories that explore traditional mysticism and modern culture, good versus evil, witchcraft and Christianity. Nollywood auteurs have mastered a down-and-dirty, straight-to-video production formula that has become the industry standard in a country plagued by poverty.”

Check out the trailer and you’ll see why you need to put it at the top of your list of summer screenings.

If you missed it at the Sundance Film Festival in January, you can see it at the MoMA from July 3-8.
