The New York Times Discovers Nollywood

The New York Times Discovers Nollywood

Well they had to eventually discover it sooner or later; but now that they have, all is right with the world. I'm referring to the Sunday New York Times article today about the Nigerian film industry and the Times' surprise that they've gone movie crazy over there.

Of course the article is more of an introductory course for those who have no idea that they're actually making films in Africa, and that there's something else is going on there besides wars and famine.

However, I get the smell of a somewhat condescending tone in the piece. You can read the article for yourself, which also contains a video about Nollywood as well, right HERE and tell me if I'm right.
