Nkechinyere Mbakwe: Oral Nollywood – Trauma und Heilung
Neue Publikation / A new Book (in German) about Nollywood / Un nouveau livre (en allemand) sur Nollywood.


Everyone is talking about Nollywood. In less than 20 years the Nigerian home video industry has risen to the third biggest film industry in the world – just behind Hollywood in the USA and Bollywood in India. Nollywood is widely known as a model of economic success but also dismissed by its critics as trivial greed for profit. However, do the more than 1,000 films produced per year which are viewed by millions on the African continent and its diaspora possibly have a deeper, perhaps even curative function? Nkechinyere Mbakwe’s thesis is that by creating and effectively distributing its own images Nollywood significantly contributes to healing the colonial trauma and to creating a Pan-African identity.
