Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is excited to announce that Crazy World, from Uganda’s action filmmaking auteur Isaac Nabwana, will launch exclusively on the company’s recently launched Alamo on Demand VOD platform, available for rental and purchase now. For the past decade, director, writer, producer, editor, and cinematographer Isaac Nabwana and producer/star Alan Ssali Hofmanis, have cultivated a filmmaking community in Uganda, dubbed Wakaliwood, to produce dozens of blisteringly energetic action films with an infectious DIY sensibility on budgets that rarely exceed $200 US dollars.
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has partnered with ScreenPlus and Vista Cinema to launch their new VOD platform, Alamo on Demand, boasting a growing library of entertainment for rental or purchase that’s been carefully curated by the company’s programming team.
