Sometimes American truth is stranger than Nigerian fiction...


Photographer Pieter Hugo documents some of the characters common to one of the world’s largest producers of feature films, Nollywood. These African productions are typically cruder than their Hollywood counterparts, sometimes costing a fraction of a fraction of even crappy American box office flops and are usually shot within days. Low production and advertising costs typically yield lower sales prices of movie tapes and discs, which makes for an affordable distraction for poor Africans. Maybe there’s a lesson in this for over-producing mega-corporations of the entertainment industries that dump almost as much into advertising as is crammed into production—nah! keep fucktard movies like G.I. Joe rolling off the line like so many flushed turds…I know you will anyway, Hollywood…I know you will.
