The Nigerian film industry, known as “Nollywood” has in 19 years grown to become the third largest in the world, only surpassed by India and the U.S. Nollywood produces more than 2500 feature films a year, with an average production-budget below $15.000.“Anna Goes Nollywood” is a witty and provocative film mixing fiction and documentary film making. It’s the story about the Danish actress, Anna, who can’t get an acting job in Denmark. She decides to go to
Nigeria to try her luck in Lagos, where the booming film industry, “Nollywood”, is employing thousands of people. The Nollywood films are filled with action, spirituality and extremely expressive acting. Anna very arrogantly believes that it will be no match for her to make it big in Nollywood. But what does it really takes to become a Nollywood actress and will Anna be able to live up to her own expectations?
