description

The latest Wakaliwood release, CRAZY WORLD is a violent action-packed Ugandan film about a gang of child-snatching mobsters called the Tiger Mafia. Operating under the belief that youth blood has supernatural properties, the Tiger Mafia develops a plan to sacrifice children as a scheme to get their blood. But when they kidnap the WAKA STARS, a badass team of kung-fu masters, the mafia is no match for the kids’ cunning wits and deadly skills.

For the past 10 years, IGG Nabwana and his team of gonzo no-budget filmmakers have made movies in the slums of Kampala, Uganda. They’ve created dozens of action films and developed a cult fan following around the globe after the success of their outrageous cult film WHO KILLED CAPTAIN ALEX?

The Calgary Underground Film Festival is proud to be streaming a special version of CRAZY WORLD re-mixed by the filmmaking team just for CUFF!
