The latest gonzo extravaganza from Wakaliwood, Uganda — home of “DA BEST OF DA BEST MOVIES!” including cult hits WHO KILLED CAPTAIN ALEX? and Fantastic Fest 2016 Audience Award winner BAD BLACK — CRAZY WORLD is a non-stop barrage of insane energy, deft comedy, fantastic action, and boatloads of passion.
For the past decade, director, writer, producer, editor, and cinematographer Isaac Nabwana and producer/star Alan Ssali Hofmanis, have cultivated a filmmaking community in Uganda, dubbed Wakaliwood, to produce dozens of blisteringly energetic action films with an infectious DIY sensibility on budgets that rarely exceed $200 US dollars. Utilizing scrap parts to build props like helicopters, these real-life superheroes inspire more heart, imagination and soul than a thousand
Conceived by Isaac Nabwana as a pre-emptive measure to discourage the kidnapping of his own children (seriously), CRAZY WORLD opens with the notorious Tiger Mafia (a frequent Wakaliwood antagonist) embarking on a child-abduction spree. Intending to sacrifice children in a misguided belief that their blood contains magical properties, the criminals make a crucial mistake when they snatch the WAKA STARS, Uganda’s pint-sized kung-fu masters. Before long, these badass brats start applying their martial-arts prowess and cunning wits to escape their captors, while their desperate parents commence a rescue/revenge mission of their own.
