Alamo Drafthouse Denton and Kuumba Media will screen an award-winning "Nollywood" film — Oga Bolaji — at 6:30 p.m. today.
Kuumba Media is owned by former University of North Texas student Freda Frimpong. Kuumba Media is distributing the film to a limited number of cinemas.
Oga Bolaji is centered around the simple happy go lucky life of a 40-year-old retired musician, who still lives with his mother. His life takes a drastic turn when he crosses paths with a young girl.
This unexpected friendship with a little girl could either lead to the worst or best part of his life. The film is directed and produced by 26-year-old Nigerian native, Kayode Kasum. The film was recently nominated for multiple awards at The African Film Festival in Dallas last June, after a successful screening at the New York African Film Festival in May.
Alamo Drafthouse Denton is located at 3220 Town Center Tr.
