You are about to hear an amazing and inspirational story about an entrepreneur who is based in Uganda.  Nabwana Isaac is a filmmaker, producer, director, editor, and director of photography, based in Kampala, Uganda.

He is the owner and founder of Ramon Film Productions, as well as Wakaliwood (wakaliwood.com).  Wakaliwood is a film studio based in Wakaliga, Uganda.  Its founder, Nabwana IGG (our guest), has been called Uganda’s Tarantino, as well being referred to as the Steven Spielberg of Uganda.  His action movies are frequently made for less than $200, and sold by the cast and crew (before the black market bootlegs make furhter revenue generation impossible).
