In Africa, if you want to be rich, create a Rebel Group, a Church or an NGO

What appears to be at first a light-hearted and entertaining comedy on how Ugandans interact with Western foreigners who want to help the poor in the country, is at its core a deep critical reflection on the exponential growth of NGOs in Uganda – if not the sub-Saharan African continent.

For the Congolese filmmaker Arnold Aganze, the NGO sector is an industry that perpetuates aid dependency, serves as a source of income while at the same time distorts society and culture. In his critique, he refers to both Western and African NGOs alike. 'I am as critical of my own society as I am of Western ones'.
