Survey African cinema through candid, revealing conversations with over twenty of the continent’s most vibrant cinematic voices, from veteran to emerging directors. Renowned filmmakers lend their voices to one-on-one interviews and group conversations, exploring African cinema as a whole and revealing their own unique experiences. Together, they illuminate trends in contemporary African cinema, ranging from emerging regional film industries to evolving gender dynamics, and the re-definition of the term “African filmmaker.” African Film Festival, Inc., has been in the unique position of charting the development of African cinema since 1990; in its 20th year in 2010, AFF is proud to have presented volume two of its landmark anthology series, Through African Eyes.
