Welcome to Nollywood says a lot about modern culture. Nigeria has a fairly well developed economy by African standards, but their motion picture industry is really based on DVD's. They crank out a number of comparable to Bollywood and they sell enough to make large profits for some producers, but are mostly seen at homes. This documentary lets the viewer sit through some scenes and listen to producers and directors. One of the most interesting story line was about one producer who had lined up an expensive array of actors and technicians, but was unable to get enough money to continue filming a movie. It was stopped and later resumed when financing was made available. From what was shown I would say their productions are uneven in quality, but more modern and sensible than I would have supposed.
