Super action! Super style! Super-amazing cinema!

There’s nothing in contemporary cinema to even remotely compare with Bad Black. Except perhaps the other 35 features made since 2002 by self-taught Ugandan filmmaker Nabwana I.G.G. Filmed entirely in the slum district of Nabwana’s childhood, Bad Black is a delirious combination of kung-fu, car chases, commando action, gloriously primitive special effects and genuinely affecting social drama. And it’s narrated by the funniest man in Uganda. Bad Black has been knocking ‘em dead at film festivals everywhere. Get ready Adelaide for action, Nabwana-style!     

"Guaranteed to thrill midnight movie geeks and well worth the attention of cineastes and film scholars." (Variety)
