Nationalist African Cinema : Legacy and Transformations, Hardback Book

Nationalist African Cinema : Legacy and Transformations Hardback


In the last decade, a certain discomfort, at times even impatience emerged among critics of African cinema.

The onset of such uneasiness can be traced back to the demise of the liberationist discourse, to the questioning of the monolithic expression "African cinema", and finally to the critical exploration of various forms of visual narratives developing at a fast speed on the continent.

Nationalist African Cinema: Legacy and Transformations reexamines African cinema of the nationalist era within the context of contemporary major Euro-American film trends.

It argues that the aesthetic diversification of African cinema can be traced as far back as the nationalist era.
