From the Back Cover:

In the conference "Africa and the History of Cinematic ideas" which took place in London in 1995, film-makers, cultural theorists and critics gathered to debate a range of issues that both united and divided them. These included the historical contexts for African cinema and the implication of new distribution and exhibition networks for a group of increasingly diasporic cinemas. The event provided a forum for debate between the different African cinematic community and for exchanges of views on different topics ranging from the problems of production, exhibition and distribution, to the problematics of "modernity", "post-colonial" theory and the stubborn presence of Western cultural imperialism.

About the Author:

June Givanni was Editor of the Black Film Bulletin until 1997 and is now a freelance film programmer and African Cinema consultant/advisor. Imruh Bakari lectures in Media, Film and Communication at King Alfred's College, Winchester, and is co-editor of African Experiences of Cinema (bfi, 996)

BRAND NEW, Symbolic Narratives/African Cinema: Audiences, Theory and the Moving Image (New edition), June Givanni, Imruh Bakari, June Givanni, Imruh Bakari, This volume provides a unique and unprecedented forum for debate between the different African cinematic communities (including North African filmmakers).

The contributors include: Manthia Diawara, Teshome Gabriel, Clyde Taylor, John Badenhorst, Ferid Boughedir, Gaston Kabore, Tafatoana Mahoso. Contributing film-makers: Ousmane Sembene, Idrissa Ouedraogo, Haile Gerima, Nouri Bouzid, John Akomfrah, Kobena Mercer, Ella Shohat, Ngugi Wa Thiongo, Tahar Cheriaa, and Sylvia Wynter.
