Nollywood • Nigeria • Photos Pieter Hugo

Nollywood is said to be the third largest film industry in the world, releasing onto the home video market approximately 1000 movies each year.Such abundance is possible since films are realized in conditions that would make most of the western independent directors cringe. Movies are produced and marketed in the space of a week: low cost equipment, very basic scripts, actors cast the day of the shooting, “real life” locations. Despite the improvised production process, they continue to fascinate audiences.
