  • Description

Beginning from an auteur standpoint, the book Auteuring Nollywood- Critical Perspectives on The Figurine interrogates extant cinematic re-presentation of African and Nigerian postcolonial realities in Nollywood.

It makes a case, using Kunle Afolayan’s The Figurine, for a critical space-clearing gesture around the notion of a neo-Nollywood which transcends the formulaic cinematic re-presentation of African and Nigerian realities to embrace a visionary and philosophic rearticulation of the role of filmmaking, and of Nollywood, in the Nigerian imagination.

The idea of neo-Nollywood, and a visionary director, therefore stands at the core of a cinematic production process that challenges, disturbs and stimulates our perception of who we are and what we can be.
