Why this petition matters

Supa Fans!  Wakaliwood needs you!

As many of you know, we are just a small village in Wakaliga, Uganda making action movies. Yet our films and spirit have become loved around da world. Some have called us The Best Emergent Cinema on the Planet, and named our film Who Killed Captain Alex, The Most Important African Film of the 21st Century.

Fans and journalists have traveled from all over the world to meet us, sharing our story in CNN, Wall Street Journal, Vice, Playboy, Paris Match, Zeit, and BBC, among many others.

Our new action film, Bad Black, has won awards all over the world including the United States, where we won both the Audience Award and Best Action Director at Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX. 

And now, incredibly, the theatrical premiere of Bad Black will be held at the MUSEUM OF MODERN ART in NYC on May 13, 2019, followed by a US Tour to promote the DVD/Blu-ray and digital release, thanks to our friends at Alamo Drafthouse and AGFA, the American Genre Film Archive.

Filmmaker Nabwana IGG has been rejected 3 times for a US Visa

We understand the approval process is difficult, and that this situation is unusual. It is IGG's dream (and perhaps the dream of some of you) to present his films in person and exchange experiences and ideas with audiences around the world. The premiere of Bad Black at MoMA and the supporting US Tour is the perfect place to start.

IGG has never been to a movie theater - what better 1st film than his own?

Perhaps this petition can help. And it doesn't matter where you live. If you are in Estonia, Peru, Spain, Canada, or South Korea, sign the petition. Tell your Embassy that Wakaliwood is loved. And let us know where to visit next!

If Wakaliwood proves anything, it's that anything is possible
