Nollywood In Hollywood is an annual showcase of the best three Nigerian films to the Hollywood film industry, Nigerians in the Diaspora, and cinema audiences in Los Angeles. Arguably Nigeria’s biggest cultural showcase outside Nigeria, it was founded by Nigerian-American filmmaker, Ose Oyamendan and co-presented by O2A Media, Inc. alongside two of the most prestigious institutions in Hollywood, the School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California and the American Cinematheque.

When Obi Okonkwo completes his studies in England and returns to Nigeria, he finds himself in a country marked by rapid industrialization and deep political change. In a time of social upheaval, Obi represents modern Nigeria. Through his gaze, his own expectations, those of his environment and the woman he loves become visible. Obi experiences the spreading corruption, the dominance of the Europeans and the conflicts with the values of traditional societies. Set in Igbo land, South-Eastern Nigeria (but filmed in Ibadan in South-Western Nigeria, less than six months after the end of the Nigerian civil war), the film presents the story of conflict in the lives of three generations of Nigerians coming to terms with the white man as told from an African viewpoint in a Technicolor film production also known as COUP DE SOLEIL in French.
