Winner of Fantastic Fest 2016’s Audience Award!

”…the far-and-away winner was BAD BLACK, a production from Wakaliwood, a film-making facility run by Nabwana IGG in the slums of the Wakaliga section of Kampala, Uganda. They may have no indoor plumbing, but they do have a tremendous amount of creativity and humor. Nabwala IGG’s movies (and he has made over thirty) are shot on cheap video with horrendous special effects. What makes them so watchable is the glee with which the actors tackle the role.” - The Guardian

Under the guidance of writer-director-producer Nabwana Isaac Godfrey Geoffrey (IGG) and with producer-star Alan Ssali Hofmanis, Uganda’s crack crew of DIY filmmakers and martial arts aficionados produce dozens of gonzo action films in the Kampala ghetto with budgets that rarely exceed $200 USD. Utilizing scrap parts to build computers, machine guns, and a full-sized Huey helicopter, these real-life superheroes inspire more heart, imagination, and soul than a thousand Hollywood blockbusters.

BAD BLACK is the most reckless brain-blast in the Wakaliwood canon! In this movie, a mild-mannered doctor (Hofmanis), is trained in the art of commando vengeance by a no-nonsense ghetto kid named Wesley Snipes (!) in an effort to regain a family heirloom from Uganda’s toughest gang. And in Uganda’s finest storytelling tradition, the films are complemented by the acerbic wit of narrator/VJ (Video Joker) VJ Emmie, who sums up the Wakaliwood experience with a single sentiment: “It is a love story … LOVE OF ACTION!”
