“Irresistible” – Los Angeles Times
Official Selection: Sundance Film Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival
Nollywood Babylon chronicles the wild world of “Nollywood,” a term coined in the early ‘90s to describe the world’s fastest-growing national cinema — surpassed only by its Indian counterpart. Peppered with outrageously juicy movie clips and buoyed by a rousing score fusing Afropop and traditional sounds, the film delves first-hand into Nigeria’s explosive homegrown movie industry, celebrating the distinctive power of Nigerian cinema as it marvels in the magic of movies.
