Wakaliwood Showcase: WHO KILLED CAPTAIN ALEX? Philadelphia Premiere
The international Ugandan phenomenon that is Wakaliwood finally makes its way to Philadelphia with a full evening of ACTION!

Wakaliwood is the nickname of Wakaliga, a tiny village in Uganda that has garnered an international reputation for making action movies with budgets as low as $200 USD.  It's the home of Ramon Film Productions and Nabwana IGG, a Ugandan filmmaker who has produced more than 40 feature films including the viral sensations WHO KILLED CAPTAIN ALEX?: UGANDA'S FIRST ACTION MOVIE and TEBAATUSASULA.

Wakaliwood has as many as 130 actors, Kung Fu masters, stunt people, technicians, machinists, and artists who have travelled from all parts of Uganda to work with Nabwana IGG. The core members meet twice a week to shoot, rehearse, distribute films, build props and gear, develop stories, practice stunts, share ideas, and watch movies.

Doors 7:30, Movie 8:00
Screening of WHO KILLED CAPTAIN ALEX?: UGANDA'S FIRST ACTION MOVIE alongside shorts, trailers, and a post-screening Skype Q&A with director Nabwana Isaac Godfrey Geoffrey!
