Francophone Film A Struggle for Identity by Lieve Spaas, Sue Lightfoot

Francophone Film A Struggle for Identity



Francophone Film A Struggle for Identity by Lieve Spaas, Sue Lightfoot

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. -- .
