African Film: Looking Back and Looking Forward acknowledges all those filmmakers and film scholars who, through their productions and theorization, have made a difference to the filmic universe in Africa. Their substantial contribution reflects our world and has the potential to change our lives. The book adopts an interdisciplinary character, traversing, as it does, the diverse subjects of politics, economics and history, among others. It interrogates Africa’s filmic past, analyses current productions, projects into the future of the film in Africa, and deals with the nature of the filmmaking profession. This book contributes to the growing literature on the African film and will provide the opportunity for filmmakers, academics and students to learn about the history, theories, problems, and various approaches to production, marketing, gender issues, race and legal issues, and a host of other subjects that impinge upon the African film.
