You can see most the photographs from Hugo’s “Nollywood” project (now a book) on his website, along with an introduction by Federica Angelucci and an essay, “Nollywood Confidential” by Cape Town-based Stacy Hardy. The actual book also includes a short story by novelist Chris Abani (“Omar Shariff Comes To Nollywood. A Storyboard In 10 Frames”) and another essay, “No Going Back,” tracing the history of the Nigerian film business by Zina Saro-Wiwa.
