The key to a healthy society is a thriving community of storytellers." Franco Sacchi's film This Is Nollywood represents one of the most compelling and profound stories of Nigeria's massive homegrown film industry, reputed to be the third-largest worldwide. The Zambia-born, Italy-bred documentary filmmaker says this is an irresistible story for anyone interested in self-generated storytelling and commerce in the developing world. Providing viewers with a guided tour through Nollywood, including the guerilla filmmaking and brilliance under pressure from crews that can shoot a full-length feature in a week, Sacchi gives a behind-the-scenes look in this inspiring TEDTalk.
