Trailer: Nollywood

This documentary looks at the people drawn to the Nigerian capital by the opportunities Nollywood offers. Among them are director Abba Makama, who is trying to create an arthouse movement like a Nigerian "New Wave," and Bastian Gotter, a young investor from Berlin, who tells us how he and his Nigerian partner financed what has become Africa’s biggest video streaming platform - almost by accident. And then there’s film producer Don Omope, who hopes the scene’s positive atmosphere will create "Nigerian Tarantinos and Spielbergs."
