Frau sitzt am Schreibtisch


Peace Mission is a guided tour through Nollywood, featuring Peace Aniyam-Fiberesima as main protagonist. The founder and CEO of the African Movie Academy takes the audience to film locations, markets and celebrity hang-outs in the vibrant production hub Lagos and meets key personalities of the Nigerian film business along the way: stars, directors, producers, marketers. Versatile and full of energy, they all share the vision of making Nollywood the long sought after platform of re-telling Africa's history from an African point of view.
Nollywood is a discovery to be made for Western audiences, who got stuck in a perception of Africa as a continent of dependency. Since this fact is also a result of Western media perception of Africa, "Peace Mission" presents fresh media images, eager to start a new chapter of relationship with each other.
