MA Student Profiles Nigerian Film Industry for NPR

With growing distribution, the thriving Nigerian film industry is poised to exert greater influence on the global scene. In a segment produced for NPR, Wills Glasspiegel speaks with Emem Isong--a prominent female power broker in the country's once male-dominated film industry.

Earlier this fall, Glasspiegel profiled Nollywood in length for the Guardian.

In his multimedia engagements with footwork from Chicago, Shangaan electro from South Africa and bubu from Sierra Leone, Glasspiegel's MA research focuses on the intended and unintended consequences of digitizing localized African and African American creative practices in the contemporary moment.
