Hollywood. Nollywood. Bollywood. Wakiliwood?

This is Ugandan cinema.

Director Isaac Nabawana shoots and edits his own action movies on a budget of just $200 per film.

Film resources are scarce in Uganda so Nabawana hires locals for cast and crew, choreographs his own fight scenes, and produces all the special effects.

The films are inspired by American action movies as well as the director’s experience living in Uganda.

Films like, ‘Who Shot Captain Alex?,” have gotten millions of views on YouTube.

And while it may not look like Transformers…it packs a lot of punch.
