Contents Introduction: flash forward: a century of cinema in Africa -- In search of origins: screening motion pictures in Africa -- The scramble for images: strange savages, paid primitives -- Negotiating natives -- Silver screens and cities of gold and copper: the mines' compound cinema circuit -- You don't know Jack: Hollywood, hybridity and the African cowboy -- From red blanket to civilization: movies and migration in South Africa -- Image imperium: the origins of British film policy in Africa -- Films of Africans, made in Africa, for Africans, under effective control: the Bantu Educational Kinema Experiment -- Conclusion: from reel to real: new horizons.
Summary "In recent decades historians and film scholars have intensified their study of colonial cinema in Africa. The vastness of the continent, the number of European powers involved and irregular record keeping has made uncovering the connections between imagery, imperialism and indigenous peoples difficult. This volume takes up the challenge, tracing production and exhibition patterns"-- Provided by publisher.
