Essay from the year 2021 in the subject Communications - Movies and Television, grade: 2.5, University of Lagos, language: English, abstract: This research identifies with the growing film industry of Nigeria, globally referred to as Nollywood. As a distinct and third largest industry after Hollywood and Bollywood, the industry is inherently ladened with its carved underguarding genres. Of importance to this research is the genre known as "Epic". Epic here refers to a conglomeration of several cultural variables that elevates culture and promotes cultural diversities. Following this, it is the attempt of this research to shed its spot light on a particular cultural variable - folklore - and how it is deployed in Nollywood. To examine this, this research attempts to subject the film titled "Osun Sengese" as a case study.
