Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes

 

 

Presenting the website

 

Nigeria

Superzebraman

Director: HORACI GARCIA, ORIOL FAURA Y JAVIER URTASUN.
SUPERZEBRAMAN, a documentary about how to make the first Spanish Nigerian production of the history without having a clue. The scene: Nollywood, the Nigerian film industry that produces the largest number of films in the world, over the powerful Hollywood and Bollywood industries. A concept of the cinema in which the movies are rolled in two weeks and for less than 20.000 dollars, accessibly a priori and which Javier Urtasun believed attainable. The thing is that this special look to the seventh art definitively is a world full of possibilities, or at least this was what Javier Urtasun thought.

Born in agreement to the requirements of script of the Nigerian industry, SUPERZEBRAMAN (The movie) counts the history of a man who changes the color of his skin thanks to the power of the zebras. An ambiguous starting point that constitutes the first step of a way riddled with anecdotes gathered in this delirious documentary.

Probably after seeing the documentary we will understand why this first Spanish Nigerian film was never done before: it is necessary to have testicles. Great ode to life and to the dreams that it we should never stop fulfilling, in SUPERZEBRAMAN (The Documentary) you realize that though the producer is drunk and the director does not appear, the important thing is to know that the perimeter is defended by a good number of AK47.
