Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The proposed course will trace the genealogy of African cinematography from colonial times through to the present day. The history of African film began in the 1960s with the independence of the colonies. This course will focus on post-1960s film making in Africa, but will provide an overview of colonial film and the roots of film production in Africa In spite of political and economic difficulties, a great many films have been made since then and the pace of production is ever increasing. Almost always political, anti-colonial themes dominated at the start while today themes range very widely. Context, conditions of production and patterns of consumption will be presented to gain a deeper understanding of the specificities of African cinematography. The course will present African film regionally, chronologically and comparatively.
