Video - Nigerian filmmaker Kunle Afolayan wants to transcend Nollywood
Nigeria's film industry, known as Nollywood, started just over 20 years ago and is now the third largest in the world.
Many of its low-budget films follow well-tried formulas with huge doses of love, betrayal and, often, witchcraft.
However, some Nigerian filmmakers are working outside the Nollywood genre, hoping to succeed internationally.
Kunle Afolayan is one of them. He studied film in New York and October 1 is his first big budget movie.
