Nollywood Babylon

Nollywood is the slang term for Nigeria's crazy, no-budget, no-holds-barred movie industry—the third largest in the world behind India and the United States. Believe it or not, Nigeria produces 2,500 films a year, most made for under $10,000. Melodramatic, exploitation-heavy storylines feature voodoo, black magic, drug-running, mobsters and plenty of gunplay. This eye-opening documentary introduces viewers to Nigeria's filmmakers, stars and avid fans. 74 minutes
