Genre: Documentary | Country: Canada | Filmmakers: Ben Addelman & Samir Mallal | Runtime: 74 mins

Nollywood Babylon drops viewers into the chaos of Lagos' Idumota market. Here, among the bustling stalls, films are sold and unlikely stars are born.
Unfazed by low budgets, enterprising filmmakers create a brash, inventive and wildly popular form of B-Movie that has Nigerians Nollywood-obsessed. In these films, voodoo and magic infuse urban stories, reflecting the collision of traditional mysticism and modern culture that Nigerians experience every day.

Part of the nationwide month-long Scalarama festival.
