Summary Chronicles the wild world of "Nollywood," a term coined in the early '90s to describe the world's fastest-growing national cinema, the Nigerian film industry. The film delves first-hand into Nigeria's explosive homegrown movie industry, producing 2500 films a year, most for under $10,000. Peppered with interviews with producers, directors and actors, film clips and buoyed by a rousing score fusing Afropop and traditional sounds, Nollywood Babylon celebrates the distinctive power of Nigerian cinema now bursting beyond the borders of Africa.
