I am so excited and looking forward to hosting you at our event this Saturday. As the Word says, everything starts with a thought. This project started with a THOUGHT and through favor became much more than that. We are very excited to be hosting the very first Nollywood New York Film Series event this Saturday at the Studio Museum, Harlem. We will be screening GREAT African films (shorts and full length), hosting a panel discussion (Gbenga Akinnagbe–Chris Parlow from HBO’s “The Wire”, Stella Damascus (Nollywood superstar), Ebbe Bassey (Law & Order and so much more), Dr. Awam Ampka (NYU Africana Studies), Oluchi Enuha (IrokoTV) and the amazing Tambay Obenson (IndieWire’s Shadow&Act) will be joining us.
I look forward to starting a movement away from cheap Nollywood and into profound storytelling, cultural enlightenment and re-imaging ourselves with these beautiful people, and YOU, our guests. Please do join us this Saturday, this is an event you DO NOT want to miss if you have any interest in a new and better Africa.
