Nollywood Hustlers

Nollywood Hustlers

by Rut Karin Zettergren & Sonia Hedstrand


Nollywood Hustlers was a research project and collaboration between Sonia Hedstrand & Rut Karin Zettergren over the years 2012-2016, where we went to the biggest movie industry in the world, Nollywood, in Lagos, Nigeria, to learn how to make Nollywood movies from the professionals there. The project resulted in a collaboration with local actors Ugochukwu Nwaeze, Naomi Diamond, Jumoke Olayemi, Patience Yisa and Ahmed Yusuf. Together we shot a full feature length Nollywood film on location in Badore, Lagos during 5 days.

A film developed in the framework of SIC.
