Films on Africa: An Educators Guide to 16mm Films Available in the Midwest.
Gerzoff, Sheila, Comp.; And Others
This is a compendium of almost 700 16mm films about Africa. The guide lists existing resources that are readily available in the Midwest to educators in elementary and secondary schools, colleges, universities, and communities. Selected were films being distributed by nonprofit educational, religious, and commercial distributors; films from African embassies and United Nations missions; documentary and feature films; and films of both very high and low quality. Stereotypical, insulting, or biased films are included as illustrative of differing political orientations and conflicts in Africa. Chapter one lists the films by topic which some college-level Africanists use, and it offers some evaluation of films. Chapter two lists available films by title and provides multiple sources for each by code along with their 1974 prices. Descriptive information and appropriate grade level are provided if known. Chapter three lists film distributors by state and gives their addresses and assigned codes. The document concludes with an annotated list of sources of information about African films. (Author/ND)
