Description - Symbolic Narratives/African Cinema: Audiences, Theory and the Moving Image by June Givanni

In the conference "Africa and the History of Cinematic ideas" which took place in London in 1995, film-makers, cultural theorists and critics gathered to debate a range of issues that both united and divided them. These included the historical contexts for African cinema and the implication of new distribution and exhibition networks for a group of increasingly diasporic cinemas. The event provided a forum for debate between the different African cinematic community and for exchanges of views on different topics ranging from the problems of production, exhibition and distribution, to the problematics of "modernity", "post-colonial" theory and the stubborn presence of Western cultural imperialism.
