Hooray for Bollywood

Latest cover of Vanity Fair has meaning crying foul for their absence of women of color featured in their profile on up and coming faces in Hollywood. For those yearning to see people of African descent on the silver screen, visit the Smithsonian Museum of African Art to Learn about Nigerian movies with the documentary Nollywood Babylon Thursday, February 4 at 7:00pm. The documentary chronicles the explosive growth of the Nigerian film industry which is second only to Bollywood.  Nollywood Babylon blends traditional and contemporary movie clips that capture the sights and sounds of Nigerian culture. Following the screening will be a discussion with the directors Ben Addelman and Samir Mallal following the screening.
