Nollywood – Nigeria's booming film industry – releases movies for the video market, TV and the diaspora. Unlike the "African Cinema" dominated by francophone states, Nollywood, perhaps, is the only film industry on the continent able to call itself a truly African cinema, as it is not funded by Europeans. 

During this film night we will show a selection of typical Nollywood movies including topics like religion, love or superstition but also political films that focus on corruption and the post-colonial experience.
