Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Film production in Africa has a complex background. A mere listing of films made by Africans, although helpful, would not clarify the structural and political issues.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on August 16, 1997
Format: Paperback
This book contains valuable information on the history of African film from colonial times to the present. It explains why film production in Africa is what it is today, from region to region. This is mainly a book on African film history, so reviews of films are not emphasized
