In episode 132 I have a great discussion with Shola Ajayi. Shola is an instructor at Ithaca College in upstate New York. She founded UR4Africa as a filmmaker after her experience filming in Lagos. We discuss Nollywood, New Nollywood and making movies with mobile phones.
Some things we discuss:
- What is Nollywood and New Nollywood
- Storytelling is part of culture
- How we’re missing stories from elders in our communities, and homes
- Supply and demand for filmmakers in Nigeria
- Why filmmakers need to write
