Bad Black Trailer

Out of the Kampala’s ghetto in Uganda comes a no budget action comedy like no other.

"Welcome to Wakaliwood, Uganda: home of “DA BEST OF DA BEST MOVIES!” and the vanguards of DIY commando cinema. Under the guidance of writer/producer/director Nabwana Isaac Godfrey Geoffrey (IGG) and with producer/star Alan Ssali Hofmanis as the mild-mannered doctor, trained in the art of ass-kicking commando vengeance by a no-nonsense ghetto kid named Wesley Snipes (!), this crack crew of self-taught filmmakers and martial arts aficionados bring us these delirious action-packed stories that converge in this exuberant DIY extravaganza from the home of “da best of da best movies”: WAKALIWOOD, UGANDA!!! Despite props, computers and gear all being built from scrap parts (including a full-size Huey helicopter!) and the ludicrously cheap but infectiously endearing CG explosions/muzzle-flashes, Wakaliwood cinema’s reckless abandon manages to inspire more heart, grit and soul than a thousand Hollywood blockbusters.

Former Woodstock Film Festival’s volunteer and the film’s producer/star Alan Ssali Hofmanis will be in attendance, with costumes and paraphernalia in hand for the audience!
