Africa through the Eye of the Video Camera

edited by Foluke Ogunleye

African through the Eye of the Video Camera emanated from the African Video Film Arts Festival, which was held at Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria. The twenty-five articles deal with foundational issues about the video film industry such as African identity as a basis for the video film. The Legal and economic environments of the video film are also discussed along with suggestions about reviewing the currents laws and drafting new laws in order to ensure the sustenance of the video genre. Country reports from Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda and Ghana are presented and the images of women as portrayed in the files are examined.
