UK Premiere

For years maverick Ugandan filmmaker Isaac Nabwana, has been creating over-the-top, low budget action films from his home in Wakaliga, affectionately known as Wakaliwood. Mesmerised by Isaac’s work, film-lover Alan Hofmanis moves to Uganda and quickly becomes his right-hand man, as well as a Ugandan film star in his own right. As Wakaliwood begins to gather viral fame, the pair will have to contend with the pressures of success and the impact it has on their creative journey. A true ode to the art of earnest filmmaking that’s guaranteed to have you cheering in the aisles.

The screening on Saturday 5 March will be followed by a Q&A with Cathryne Czubek, hosted by the GFF Young Selectors.
