This book emphasizes the plurality of African cinema through a variety of themes and critical approaches that illuminate the scope of the mobilizing techniques for its proliferation, as well as its deep concern for methods of production, film aesthetics, theory, and criticism. Critical Approaches to African Cinema Discourse will offer scholars and students in film, media, and cultural studies, as well as in history, and Black and African studies, a broader understanding of African cinema as a cultural art. The contributors show that it is informed not only by ideological determinants but also by the concern to boost perspectives for reading African film images that may or may not belong to the conventional interpretations proffered in Euro-American critical paradigms.

Originally released as a videographic experiment in film history, Jean-Luc Godard's Histoire(s) du cinéma has pioneered how we think about and narrate cinema history, and in how history is taught through cinema. In this stunningly illustrated volume, Michael Witt explores Godard’s landmark work as both a specimen of an artist's vision and a philosophical statement on the history of film. Witt contextualizes Godard's theories and approaches to historiography and provides a guide to the wide-ranging cinematic, aesthetic, and cultural forces that shaped Godard's groundbreaking ideas on the history of cinema.

Released in 1995, La Haine is the black and white chronicle of 24 hours in the life of a mixed-race young male trio from a run-down Parisian suburb. The work of a then unknown young team (director and actors were all under 30), it became hugely and unexpectedly successful, launching director Mathieu Kassovitz and lead player Vincent Cassel to stardom.The film's combination of hard-hitting social exposé, stylish black and white cinematography and hip-hop culture also turned it into an enduring cult movie with younger viewers. With great style and insight, Ginette Vincendeau provides a thorough understanding of the context of the film's making, its narrative tension, stylistic sophistication and ideological ambiguity and of its extraordinary success nationally and internationally. She thus explains why, out of so many films about disaffected youth, La Haine is the one that caught the imagination, becoming an instant classic.

With a career spanning more than five decades, director and cinematographer Michel Brault is one of the most influential figures in Québécois cinema. Cinema as History: Michel Brault and Modern Quebec is André Loiselle’s study of his life and his work. Brault’s early works, including Les Raquetteurs (co-directed with Gilles Groulx) and Pour la Suite du Monde (co-directed with Pierre Perrault) reflected a hitherto unacknowledged and unfulfilled need on the part of Québécois society to see their own culture reflected onscreen—and helped spark a cultural renaissance in Quebec. His 1974 fiction feature Les Ordres, which deals with the FLQ crisis and the invocation of the War Measures Act by then prime minister Pierre Trudeau, has consistently been listed as one of the best Québécois and Canadian films. Brault’s work as cinematographer has been equally essential, with groundbreaking films like Claude Jutra’s Mon Oncle Antoine (1971) and Francis Mankiewicz’s Les Bons Débarras (1980). He was a key contributor to the development of the cinema-verité movement, serving as cinematographer on French director Jean Rouch’s legendary Chronique dun Été (1961). André Loiselle’s study of Brault’s work and career moves beyond traditional auteurist studies to explore how Brault’s work reflected (and in some cases helped instigate) changes in Quebec society over four decades. More than any other filmmaker, Brault managed to capture the culture’s zeitgeist. Distributed in Canada by Wilfrid Laurier University Press. Distributed outside Canada by Indiana University Press.

Philosophy, and in particular continental philosophy, has provided a conceptual underpinning for cinema since its beginnings, especially in the development of cinematic aesthetics. In its turn, film has rethought the abstractions of space and time and the categories of sex and gender and has created new concepts which illuminate phenomenology, metaphysics and epistemology. "Film and Philosophy" brings together leading scholars to provide a detailed overview of the key thinkers who have shaped the field of film philosophy. The thinkers include continental and 'post-continental' philosophers, analytic philosophers, film-makers, film reviewers, sociologists, and cultural theorists.The essays reveal how philosophy can be applied to film analysis and how film can be used to illustrate philosophical problems. But more importantly, the essays explore how film has shaped what philosophy thinks and how philosophy has lead to a reappraisal of film. The book will prove an invaluable reference and guide to readers interested in a deeper understanding of the issues and insights presented by film philosophy." Film and Philosophy" includes essays on: Hugo Munsterberg, Vilem Flusser, Siegfried Kracauer, Theodor Adorno, Antonin Artaud, Henri Bergson, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Emmanuel Levinas, Andre Bazin, Roland Barthes, Serge Daney, Jean-Luc Godard, Stanley Cavell, Jean-Luc Nancy, Jacques Derrida, Gilles Deleuze, Sarah Kofman, Paul Virilio, Jean Baudrillard, Jean-Francois Lyotard, Fredric Jameson, Felix Guattari, Raymond Bellour, Christian Metz, Julia Kristeva, Laura Mulvey, Homi Bhabha, Slavoj Zizek, Stephen Heath, Alain Badiou, Jacques Ranciere, Leo Bersani, Giorgio Agamben, and Michel Chion.

Avec l'éclatement du rêve d'une histoire mondiale unifiée, le débat sur Histoire et Mémoire est à l'ordre du jour. L'Afrique n'y fait pas exception, mais à sa manière. Cet ouvrage n'est pas une collection de " lieux de mémoire " relevant d'un patrimoine national dûment authentifié, comme dans le cas français. Il s'agit plutôt d'une illustration de la manière dont les sociétés africaines de jadis et d'aujourd'hui revisitent leur passé : leurs interrogations reflètent moins la nostalgie d'une antiquité en déshérence que les besoins d'une histoire en train de se forger. La fonction sociale de la mémoire dans les traditions orales révèle des dynamiques déjà décelables dans les anciennes remémorations. Le moment de la colonisation sera celui de l'étouffement ou de la domination des legs du passé, allant jusqu'à la récupération ou même à la destruction des lieux où s'accrochaient les identités des peuples soumis. Mais l'aspect le plus intéressant est la façon dont les cultures africaines ont réinterprété leurs traditions selon les normes et les besoins de leur nouvelle expérience historique, confrontée à la domination étrangère : l'africanisme blanc a pénétré les cultures noires, mais celles-ci ont aussi fait de la science du colonisateur un outil de résistance des colonisés. Par delà ces jeux du traditionalisme sous sa forme moderne, on assiste même à des réappropriations des repères plantés par l'Occident et à la participation à sa ferveur commémorative autour de sites monumentaux ou de grandes dates. Tous les exemples font réfléchir sur ces regards croisés et sur ce jeu de réinterprétations du passé africain, confronté à l'ethnographie étrangère. Sans se complaire dans la description de ces représentations, le livre les met en situation historique avec la précision critique nécessaire. C'est aussi un bel exemple d'historiographie de l'Afrique. L'ensemble du continent au sud du Sahara est couvert, reflétant la diversité des climats culturels : du Sénégal à Madagascar, du Zimbabwe au Niger, des Grands Lacs au golfe de Guinée, de l'Afrique du Sud à l'Ethiopie, et des espaces incertains de l'ancien Ghana à l'utopie africaine du cinéma francophone.
