“Coming to you live from Africa!” Welcome to Wakaliwood.


Meet Isaac Nabwana: maverick micro-budget Ugandan action film director extraordinaire (47 films in 11 years!). With a prop arsenal Macguyvered from scrap metal, squibs made from condoms filled with fake blood, and an admiration for all things 80’s – including Chuck Norris - Isaac’s films are all produced in the slums of Wakaliga in Kampala, Uganda.

After stumbling across a viral film trailer for one of Isaac’s biggest hits, New York film programmer Alan Hoffmanis decides to pack up his life and track down "Africa's Tarantino". What was initially a short stay turns into years, as the bromance of Isaac’s untameable vision and Alan’s marketing savvy sets the scene for international stardom.

A true ode to the art of earnest filmmaking, guaranteed to have you cheering in the aisles.

In Luganda with English subtitles.
