Summary Explores the inner working of Nigeria's newly emerging film industry, introducing viewers to Nollywood's producer/directors: Chico Ejiro, Izu Ojukwu, and Bond Emeruwa. "Through clips and on-set visits, we meet Chico Ejiro, aka "Mr. Prolific," a filmmaker who has made over a hundred films. We follow the production of an epic war film by Izu Ojukwu, a young Nollywood director who is known for his high intensity action films. Both directors battle limited budgets, frequent power outages, mutinous casts, and none of the infrastructure that supports other national cinemas." "Churning out nearly 2,500 straight-to-video releases a year, [Nigerian filmmakers have] made the West African nation the world's third-largest movie market after the U.S. and India."--Container.
