The best cult cinema of the century is being made in Uganda. We interview the creator of some of Africa’s best contemporary film exports, Nabwana I.G.G., and documentarian Cathryne Czubek who has made a new film about the Wakliwood project. Who Killed Captain Alex? (2010), Crazy World (2014), and Big Black (2016) will go down as some of the most thrilling action movies of our time. We talk about the influences of visceral kung-fu movies, cultural differences which inform the materials, the present and future of Ugandan cinema, and what it was like making a documentary about such globally revered action films.
