9781574410280: Black Cinema Treasures: Lost and Found

Focusing on a much-neglected area of film experience in America, Black Cinema Treasures furthers the preservation of America’s cultural and historic heritage, especially its African-American heritage as seen through the eyes of the African-American independent filmmakers of the 1920s through the 1950s. Ossie Davis says that the collection is one of the best sources of black self-consciousness” in America during those decades.

About the Author:

G. William Jones was professor of cinema and video in the Meadows School of the Arts, Southern Methodist University, Founder/Director of the Southwest Film/Video Archives there, and founder of the USA Film Festival in Dallas.

From Library Journal:

This is an extremely important addition to the literature on black film from the 1930s through the 1950s, largely because it offers primary documentation on more than a dozen newly discovered films (features and shorts) heretofore considered lost or existing only in fragmentary condition. Although the body of scholarship on black cinema has grown significantly in the last 15 years, research on the films made during the great period of black independent filmmaking (the Teens through the mid-Fifties) was forestalled due to difficulty in procuring the films. The book also contains brief assessments by black film artists on the importance of this historical period. An extensive filmography of black independent films from 1910 to 1957 is also very valuable. This study should rekindle an investigation of this period in black history, and is a necessary acquisition for any collection which addresses cinema.
