African cinema from its early days to the present. Through screening of selected African films, different trends within African cinema such as "Return to the Sources" and the rediscovery of the pre-colonial past; the "Social Realist" narrative and critique of post independence Africa; reconstructing the story of colonialism from the perspectives of the colonized; and the entertainment genre, will be explored. Techniques, style, and aesthetics of African cinema will also be discussed. The course offers a unique opportunity of looking at African culture and society, and at issues of social change, gender, class tradition and modernization through African eyes.
