Set in the heart of Uganda, Once Upon a Time in Uganda celebrates a universal love and passion for movies through the story of the world-famous Wakaliwood studios, creators of Who Killed Captain Alex.

Uncovering the hilarious, DIY and action-packed world of founder and director Isaac Nabwana, aka Nabwana I.G.G, this is the unlikely story of a creative powerhouse harnessing their love of Chuck Norris and gonzo ‘80s action flicks to kickstart an entirely new film industry.

With sheer determination and an outrageous sense of humour, Nabwana creates explosive movies, catapulting Wakaliwood to international stardom and bringing laughter and joy to millions.

Once Upon a Time in Uganda is the perfect representation of the enduring spirit of independent cinema, our love for movies, and how they bring the world together.” Slashfilm
