How did Nigeria create the second largest movie industry in the world?

Nollywood began in Nigeria in the 1990s and has grown into one of the most recognized cultural centers of the world, producing more movies every year than Hollywood and almost as many as Bollywood. Emily Witt ("One of America's foremost prose stylists under the age of forty." —Christian Lorentzen, New York Magazine) travels to Nigeria to offer a vivid, rollicking tour of the industry today, from the back alleys of the marketplaces of Lagos to the glamour of a red-carpet premier, from startups trying to digitize what has been largely an economy based on piracy to the shooting of a historic epic in the northern city of Jos.
