Online Course: "African Film" FRENCHST-353
via UMass Amherst
Taught by Patrick Mensah
Summer Session 2: July 7th to August 15th
African Film explores the history and development of African film as a visual art, and studies, as well, a selection of the political and social themes that have preoccupied its practitioners since its inception. Africa has been the object of filmic exploration and scrutiny since the development of film technology, even though, until the early sixties, such filming of Africa was almost exclusively practiced by Westerners for purposes that were more or less allied to the promotion of colonial objectives, or the production of “exotic” and negative images and stereotypes for entertainment.
These courses are offered in a collaborative arrangement between the Five College Center for the Study of World Languages and Mount Holyoke Professional and Graduate Education.
