Hi Guys. This topic has been on my mind for years now. I’m Nigerian and I love Sci Fi. In fact I love it so much it pretty much decided my career path as it has for so many of you. I’ve always wanted to write about why a lot of Africans, or Nigerians in my case, don’t think we should be doing Sci Fi movies. The main reason they cite is that 'It's not in our culture' . At that point I see red and turn into the Hulk and can remember little else.
The funny thing is that I never got round to writing about it until I joined the Black Science Fiction Society. I kept replying to another Forum discussion but I didn’t want to derail the thread.
Here’s my blog post with my thoughts. http://evclvisuals.blogspot.com/2011/02/should-africans-do-sci-fi-i-always-get.html or http://evclvisuals.blogspot.com/ .Let me know what you think. Should Africans do Sci Fi movies? I think there’s a market for it but I could be biased.
