First there was Hollywood, then Bollywood, now the Nigerians are making their name in the film industry. Producing 2000 films a year, Nigerias burgeoning film industry is making waves across the world. We have to work real fast. We work on a very, very tight budget, says Moses, one of Nollywoods biggest directors. He has thrived in an industry where entire feature films are written, filmed, and on the screen in less than a month. We in Nigeria, we have strength. We have the energy to make it happen, says cameraman Austin, hanging precariously out of the window of a car to get a travelling shot. With no budget for special effects or sets, its the actors that take precedence: I love the fact that I can project our image, our way of life, and our culture, says one of Nigerias biggest stars. According to one of its foremost directors, Nollywoods home-grown stories connect to people in a way that American blockbusters can't: Nollywood is nothing more than therapy. Produced by SBS, distributed by Journeyman Pictures.

Moses Inwang is a Nollywood director. He directed Damage which starred Tonto Dike, Kalu Ikweagu, Uche Jombo, and a host of others.
