Nyege Nyege Festival team up with Wakaliwood for a priceless short-movie :.

 
Some of you may already know about the local “film industry” coming from Wakaliga (a slum in Uganda’s capital Kampala) named Wakaliwood that is making big waves worldwide with low-budget comedy/action movies directed by self-thought filmmaker Isaac Nabwana and his Ramon Film Productions where local tradition and history blends with extreme violence, Chinese martial arts or caustic humor, leading to international success that made people travel from all Uganda to join the studio that are now 130 actors, stunt people, martial arts training and crews like Uganda’s Kung Fu Kidz, prop masters, make-up artists, technicians and even an American actor, Alan Hofmanis who traveled from NYC and spent 8 months in Uganda working with Ramon Film Productions after watching a trailer for their most iconic works “Who Killed Captain Alex” (watch here). Lets not forget that big part of the hilarious side of the videos come from the presentation with a live Video Joker (VJ), “that is best described as part comedian, narrator, cheerleader, and slum tour guide”.

In 2015 Nyege Nyege Music Festival in Uganda invited Ramon Film Productions to do a work during the course of the event and the result couldn’t be more outstanding. Representing their own style, the short-movie works not only as a creative aftermovie of the festival but also as the best special promo for the 2016 edition in September. Check the official Youtube Channel for more Wakaliwood or Facebook.

Watch below the official after movie for Nyege Nyege Festival and check the official website and Facebook. 2016 will have a massive line-up. “North, West, South and East African are all sending their underground music legends to come and represent the best of what contemporary African music has to offer”
