In the heart of Wakaliga, Uganda, this outrageous documentary follows two men from opposite sides of the world who come together over a shared love for Chuck Norris. Isaac Nabwana (known as ‘Africa’s Tarantino’) a former brick maker, decides to pick up a camera and start shooting his own ’80s inspired action epics, and Alan Hofmanis, a film nerd from New York who gives up his life in America to join forces with Isaac after seeing a trailer for one of his films online. Against all odds, the two unlikely friends have catapulted Wakaliwood to worldwide stardom with their gonzo action movies, such as Who Killed Captain Alex, Bad Black and Crazy World, bringing thrills to film fans across the world and earning screenings at leading genre film festivals and releases through fan-favourite cult labels.

“The film is strongest when capturing Nabwana’s resourcefulness, the exuberance of the local volunteers who serve as his actors and crew, and the joy his films bring to a Ugandan audience hungry for movies.” – Robert Daniels, New York Times
