Which do you think is the second largest film industry in the world? That's right, it's NOLLYWOOD. It's based in Nigeria and produces about 2,500 films a year! The opportunities in the burgeoning industry attract diverse characters. Director Abba Makama sees the moment for an intellectual cinematic movement, a sort of Nigerian New Wave. Bastian Gotter, a young investor from Berlin, tells how he and his Nigerian partner – almost by accident succeeded in founding the largest streaming service in Africa. Popcorn cinema producer Don Omope also wants to make use of the positive spirit: „We are here to become the Nigerian Tarantinos and Steven Spielbergs.“
