Nollywood reports say veteran actor Justus Esiri is not happy with the current state of Nollywood.
He is therefore advocating that each local area should have a film village or call it community viewing centres.
That, he claimed, was the only way to tell that Nollywood film industry or African cinema was developing.
“Let there be at least one cinema house in every local area across Africa.
Then each government begins to produce films to take care of the youth, training the youth into taking part in different areas of the industry; in acting, producing, directing, cameraman, makeup artistes, and costumier among others. That is about eight professions in just one industry.
That will mean opening up the villages because you have to use them to shoot the films instead of concentrating them at centers where not everybody can access, and if this could solve the issue of unemployment,” Justus told onlinenigeria.com.
“It would have done so much. We should train people for these jobs and then we would be world beaters.
We should not be the way we are; retrogressing. And we must also stop over shooting of movies where we mind only of quantity and not quality.
This is the dream we had when we started the film industry, for with movies we can cement our social cultural, political, religions, educational, economic, and traditional barriers.”
Justus is one of the best in Nollywood noted for his elderly roles. He is popularly known for his character in the film ‘Wasted Years’.
