Abstract:This special issue of Journal of African Cinemas is dedicated to the region north of the Sahara. It defines the region along geographical lines, and highlights the transnational nature of cinema from this region, while also recognizing an interest in national cinema in the individual countries under scrutiny. The approach is geographically and linguistically transnational in the sense that the issue includes chapters from the extreme east and west of North Africa, where dialects of the Arabic language share linguistic traits but also vary greatly. The order of the articles, which is not geographical but thematic, contributes to a transnational reading of topics and issues of concern to filmmakers and their audiences. Contents: Introduction to the special issue: the North in African cinemas (Stefanie Van De Peer); Golden age divas on the silver screen: challenging or conforming to dominant gender norms? (Mona Abdel-Fadil); Resistance and reinvention: representations of the belly dancing body in Raja Amari's 'Satin rouge/Red Satin' (2002) (Kaya Davies Hayon); Constructions of sexuality in recent Maghrebi films by women film-makers (Patricia Caillé); The sacrificial sheep in three French-North African films: displacements and reappropriations (Dora Carpenter-Latiri); Religion and individual civil rights: Moroccan Jewish citizens in 'Where are you going Moshe?' (Charles Elkabas); Algerian cinema between commercial and political pressures: the double distortion (Walid Benkhaled); Accented Algerian documentary: Jean-Pierre Lledo's 'Trilogy of exile' (Sophie Bélot); Documenting defiance: women film-makers in Tahrir Square (May Telmissany).
