Actor Jimmy Jean-Louis shared news on Twitter of a documentary film he co-directed and produced, titled “Jimmy Goes to Nollywood,” in which he visits fellow filmmakers and actors in Nigeria and Ghana, as he takes a look at continental Africa’s most prolific movie industry – Nollywood.
The film is currently streaming on Netflix, so add it to your watch list. I’ll be checking it out myself this weekend.
Mr. Jean-Louis co-directed the film with Rachid Dhibou.
Nigerian, Ghanaian and American actors and filmmakers all feature in the documentary, including: Ama K. Abebrese, Ebbe Bassey, Leila Djansi, Hakeem Kae-Kazim, Majid Michel, Akin Omotoso, O.C. Ukeje, Isaiah Washington, Lynn Whitfield and others.
