Isaac Nabwana makes action movies in Wakaliga – a slum in Uganda's capital Kampala. The self-taught filmmaker has almost no budget, but his enthusiasm makes up for that. Now he's set to shoot his first major television production.
Wakaliwood, also known as Ramon Film Productions, is a film studio based in Wakaliga, a slum in Uganda's capital of Kampala. Its founder and director is Isaac Godfrey Geoffrey Nabwana, a.k.a. Nabwana I.G.G., who has been called Uganda's Tarantino, after the gratuitous violence in his films.
In Uganda, the emerging film industry is known as Ugawood or sometimes Kinauganda by the locals. The first Ugawood film is the 2005 production Feelings Struggle directed by Ashraf Ssemwogerere.
