Francophone film

A struggle for identity

Lieve Spaas

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Introduces the reader to the rich film production of the French-speaking countries outside France, commonly called Francophonia, comprised of Belgium, Switzerland, Quebec, the Caribbean, the Maghreb and many sub-Saharan countries
  • Brings together films that might otherwise be divided by questions of race, gender, genre, period or national boundary
  • Individual countries, film-makers and films are treated separately in order to emphasise their specific identities or those which are represented in their films
  • Provides detailed analysis of key films within the historical context allowing for further comparative study of an unusually diverse corpus of films
