Top Nigeria documentaries

Struggle and resilience are two of the topics explored in RTD's Nigeria documentaries. Combating the scourge of terrorism gets a new twist in 'Hunting Boko Haram.' The film joins a group of hunters-turned-vigilantes as they help government forces track down insurgents. Filmmakers in Lagos have overtaken Hollywood in terms of numbers of movies produced. Burgeoning ‘Nollywood’, as it's called, releases hundreds of movies each year, creating new stars in front of and behind the camera.
