What People are Saying About This

Feb. 2008 - Net

African Filmmaking is very much a film studies narrative . . . For classes that cover this terrain, it is supremely useful for students.[1] Not only does Armes canvass enormous territory, succinctly and in elegant prose, but he has also made a judicious selection of directors and films. Most important, he takes an approach that brings together North Africa and Francophone West and Central Africa to draw out insights that might otherwise be blurred . . . . —H—AfrArts
