Summary
These essays speak to contemporary issues in African cinema. They address key aspects of post-colonialism and feminism - the two major topics of interest in current criticism. Issues of spectatorship, national identity, ethnography, patriarchy, women's roles, and the creation of key film industries-issues that animate the discussion of film today are central to this volume
