Product Description

"A splendid addition to the burgeoning literature on 'third cinema', this coherent and well-conceptualized collection focuses on a fascinatingly variegated archipelago of films, from popular features like Sugar Cane Alley and The Harder They Come to still-to-be-discovered masterpieces like Ava and Gabriel. The writing is excellent throught, with contributions by Aime Cesaire, Daniel Boukman, Stuart Hall, Maryse Conde, Michaelle Lafontant-Medard, Jon Stewart and Sylvia Winter. The critical discussion goes far beyond the films themselves to engage contemporary issues of post-coloniality, and Afro-diasporic art. The analyses are theoretically sophisticated and never fail to provide historical contextualization for the films under discussion. The publication of this volume is especially opportune at a moment when notions of marginality, syncretism, and hybridity are the subjects of passionate debate. A superb contribution to a multi-culturalist remapping of the cinema." -Robert Stam, Professor of Cinema Studies, New York University, co-author of Brazilian Cinema
