Ten directors

David Murphy and Patrick Williams

Published by Manchester University Press

  • An up to date and important volume on film-makers from the African continent
  • Ideal for students who want to explore the films from one of the more neglected areas in world cinema
  • Ten chapters deal with striking examples of directors who have contributed to African cinema, from Egypt, Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Guinea-Bissau, Burkina Faso, Tunisia, Cameroon, South Africa
  • The directors have been chosen for their range of stylistic approaches, the geographical spread of where they work, and the representative nature of their acknowledged and nascent careers
