Abstract

296 BOOK REVIEWS contexts evoked by the contributors. In the end, the limitations of the editor's approach are overcome by the very body of work he introduces. The con­ tributors' running dialogue about the contemporary repertoire of African and diasporic filmmaking resituates the book's opening analysis in the complexity of the present and in anticipation of the future. Whereas an account of the dual influences of capitalism and colonialism helps us understand the contin­ ued lack of resources for African films and the profit-driven marketplace that hinders their distribution, it also proceeds in part under the active-passive logic that underlies the colonial project itself. The collective goals of this volume are oriented toward playing an active role on the cultural stage, as filmmakers search for strategies of regional and international cooperation that will allow African and diasporic films to be widely produced and distributed.
