Last year, Nigeria beat out South Africa as Africa's biggest economy, and one of the reasons is said to be because of Nigeria's booming film industry Nollywood. According to a UNESCO report in 2009, Nollywood surpassed Hollywood in the number of films it produces each year. Nollywood produces everything from sci-fi films to romantic dramas, often low-budget movies made with short production schedules.
"Head Gone", a comedy by Sweden's first Nollywood director, Dare Fasasi, involves a group of mental patients and a gang of unsuspecting commuters, and the film questions what insanity is, exactly.
Fasasi believes Nollywood films have grown in order to fill a cultural gap, telling Swedish Radio Culture News that "Africans are no longer satisfied with consuming foreign content... which has no relationship to their present situation."
