Nigeria's movie industry produces between one and two thousand films a year, making it the world's third-largest after those of India and America. Lurid, lo-fi, and distributed straight to DVD, Nollywood movies boast zero artistic kudos and are little-known outside their homeland - but their local popularity is such that even the evangelical church has taken to using them to spread its gospel. This energetic, informative documentary lifts the lid on a film business phenomenon. 'Part of the Edinburgh International Film Festival'.
