  • Description:

    Lagos, Nigeria. An American journalist, a Nigerian Filmmaker, and a colonial ghost. Narration interrupts insidious representations as ethnography is forcefully evicted from the house of rationality. Documentary footage of Lagos mixes with pirated “Nollywood” cut-outs in a series of fictions reconstructing notions of Africa and highlights an ongoing Western fascination with the continent. This is not a film about Nollywood. This is a film about GHOST[S/ING]
