Abstract:This article traces the making of nonfiction film in Africa from early days up to 1940, distinguishing two periods: 1896-1918 and 1918-1940. The author has a fairly comprehensive index of relevant films preserved in Britain and the USA, but only patchy records of what survives in Europe and Africa. Details of the location of preserved films have been included. Special attention is paid to British newsreel coverage of Africa between 1922 and 1939. Notes, ref.
