The Making of a Film Empire
This was an easy to read, brief history of how Nigeria developed a film industry with its own unique voice. It looks at the hardships faced by film makers, actors and distributors and how much has changed in the past twenty or so years. Thus, giving the reader an insight into what makes this industry tick.
I loved the fact that the author was able to capture the chaotic, liveliness of a country with such a diverse population. I appreciated the details of the various films which were showcased. They all sounded like films I would love to see. In the end, this book made me more interested in African story telling in general and what the film industry in Nigeria might produce in the future.
Thanks to Columbia Global Reports for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
