Coming, well now from the slums of Wakaliga, Uganda's first action movie Who Killed Captain Alex?

NWA: Nabwana With Attitude.

 The movie tells the tale of a massive battle between Ugandan commandos, attack helicopters and the fearsome Tiger Mafia during the aftermath of the death of the aforementioned Captain Alex and is a testament to lofi film-making everywhere that frankly puts most film-makers to shame.

 Produced, written, directed, shot, and edited by Nabwana Isaac Godfrey Geofrey from his home for under £150 and using real blood and a modified car jack for a tripod, WKCA? was shot in two hours - and amidst real gun fire - the day before the film was made available for sale.

Seriously you couldn't make this shit up.

Who Killed Captain Alex? My moneys on the bloke with the massive machine gun.

I could say more but why bother when you can head straight over to the Wakaliwood website and get the full story from associate producer (and sole American in town) Alan Ssali Hofmanis, a man so impressed by Nabwana's work that he upped sticks and moved to Wakaliga to help him in his dream of building a Ugandan Hollywood.

Sirs, the Arena salutes you.
