Abstract:This special issue explores the ways in which the emerging local film industries in East Africa are overcoming the burden of colonial and foreign film-making in order to establish film-making practices with distinct approaches and characteristics. The topics, films, and theoretical and analytical approaches included are diverse and wide ranging, despite the limited geographical scope.
