Andrew Dosunmu is one of the coolest Nigerian independent filmmakers. His latest film, Restless City, tells the story of young, nomadic Senegalese immigrant, Djbirl (played by Sy Alassane), an aspiring musician, struggling to survive on the fringes of New York City. When he falls in love with a prostitute (Jamaican-born model/actress Nicole Grey) who works for the local loan shark. This is a story of love and survival with some amazing photography!

Boost for Hollywood studios as China agrees to ease quota on US films:
Limit currently set at 20 blockbusters a year to be raised to 34 – but additional movies must be 3D or Imax versions.
Major American studios and independent film-makers alike are celebrating the deal to settle a long-running trade dispute, struck by Joe Biden and Xi Jinping.
It also allows foreign film-makers to keep a bigger share of box office takings: they will receive 25% instead of 13%. “This is a very big deal,” said Chris Dodd, chairman of the Motion Picture Association of America.
This will be huge for the U.S. film industry.
