NOLLYWOOD and Pieter Hugo

I began writing about the Corman-esque film scene from Nigeria known as Nollywood and the tableaux of the clearly surreal metaphors rooted in  symbolic imagery, and then emblematically decided to delete it all.

Because the topic reminded me of a board game not everyone wanted to play,  you know,  Candy Land might be too callow or Monopoly too stagnant, so I chose a few Nollywood scenarios and characters to get everyone active in some mental role-playing.

PLAYER1: PhantomThe Powers

PLAYER 2: Crystal’s Light

PLAYER3: Harold

PLAYER4: Yves Saint Laurent

PLAYER5: Naked Man

PLAYER6: The Booty Crew

PLAYER7: Brian Austin Green

Are you left wondering whether your perceptions of the real world are indeed real?
