Funky Elephant proudly present Nigerian movies in Andorra on their opening day Wednesday 11.4. as a part of Nigerian culture year 2012-2013 executed by Afaes ry. As the productionally 2nd largest movie industry in the world, Nollywood has the sovereign command of Africa’s movie markets. Nollywood started its activity in 1960s, and during the decades it has grown to be a huge mechanism that produces 1000-2000 movies every year. Nollywood’s amount of production easily passes by Hollywood, and it loses for Bollywood with only a hunch. This been said, movie business is nowadays the second largest employer in whole Nigeria.
From their themes Nollywood’s products are often quite family centered, which makes them more popular in African communal cultures than its American cousin’s. Also religion is a widely handled subject, and many movies blatantly preach about Christian or Islamic ideologies. On the other hand, the ethical problems concerning a modern African have risen to a popular theme in the past years, and this has given room for movies that emphasize or reflect religious diversity.
