      Abstract: With this timely and robust issue, we mark fifteen successful years of publication, constituting thirty original issues of Black Camera.Unlike other scholarly film journals, readers long acquainted with Black Camera observe that the format and organization of nearly every issue features distinctive portfolios: "Close-Ups," "Dossiers," and "Documents" devoted to the in-depth study of filmmaking in Africa and its diasporas worldwide.Indeed, for reference and study, it merits citing here the frequency and diversity of Close-Ups published to date:•Nothing But a Man—Spring 2012•Precious—Winter 2012•Teza—Spring 2013•Afrosurrealism—Fall 2013•Nollywood—A Worldly Creative Practice—Spring 2014•Postcolonial Filmmaking ...

  • "Oh, the Places It Did Go": The Diasporic Journeys of Blaxploitation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In light of the international protests of the murders of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd in 2020, Tyre Nichols in 2023, the rise of the Black Lives Matter Movement, and the continued violent and unjust antagonisms between law enforcement and Black communities in the United States, we feel it necessary to revisit Black films made in the 1970s. The term "Blaxploitation" is considered an umbrella term, grouping all Black films made in the 1970s under one rubric, despite their breadth of genres. Questions of auteurship, black dramatic agency, and participants' control over their careers within a notoriously segregated film industry need to be addressed in scholarship, especially regarding the adaptation of ...

  • Revisiting Sara Gómez

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Black Camera invites submissions for a Close-Up on the late Afrocuban filmmaker Sara Gómez. A staunch revolutionary and a firm believer in the role of art in shaping a new Cuba, Gómez was committed to making film (and revolution more generally) that at once celebrated and critiqued the revolutionary process; that documented the revolution's unfolding and contributed to its formation. Gómez was one of only three Black filmmakers—and the only woman filmmaker—working in the Instituto Cubana del Arte e Industria Cinematográficos (ICAIC) during the early years of the Cuban Revolution. This frequently cited biographical note points in many ways to the limits of the Revolution's commitments to race and gender struggle ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Black Camera invites submissions for a Close-Up focused on the 1972 film Sambizanga, by the French filmmaker of Caribbean descent, Sarah Maldoror (1929–2020).Sambizanga centers the experience of a young Angolan mother, Maria, as she searches for her husband Domingos after he is kidnapped by colonial police, and in the process pictures the underground movement for Angolan independence a decade before the film's production. Adapted from José Luandino Vieira's novella The Real Life of Domingos Xavier (1961), Sambizanga has been described as the first feature film directed by a Black woman. Utilizing non-professional actors, Maldoror's film mixes the personal narrative of Maria and her husband with explicitly ... Read More

  • Renewing Black Radicalism and Labor Militancy with Finally Got the News
           (1970): An Introduction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: "Cast away illusions and prepare for struggle!"2Somewhere between historical document and radical pedagogy, Finally Got the News (dir. Stewart Bird, Peter Gessner, and René Lichtman, 1970) has inspired audiences on the Left for generations, persistently raising the importance and interrelation of working-class politics and Black liberation to social transformation. Few films within the canon of radical documentary share the stature and lasting impact of Finally Got the News (FGtN).Set in the industrial furnace of Detroit at the peak of a worldwide rebellion, FGtN purveyed and expressed the militant spirit animating the long 1960s of labor militancy and Black radicalism. The Detroit Rebellion, a five-day citywide ... Read More

      Abstract: Then came this battle called Civil War, beginning in Kansas in 1854, and ending in the presidential election of 1876—twenty awful years.The slave went free; stood a brief moment in the sun; then moved back toward slavery."UAW" means "You ain't white!"On July 23, 1967, a violent police raid on an after-hours Black bar incited what is now known as the Detroit Rebellion, the largest of the more than 150 riots and urban insurrections that swept the United States during the Long Hot Summer of that year. Less than nine months later, following the April 4 assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., a second riot shook Detroit, accompanied by uprisings in over one hundred other cities. The murder of King, easily the most ... Read More

      Abstract: In his thought-provoking book The Death of Cinema, Paolo Cherchi Usai shows that what used to be the leading method of film studies—"film as text" and "textual analysis"—implied nothing but an ahistorical abstraction due to the establishing of "the model image" as its point of departure.2 As Cherchi Usai famously puts it: "If all moving images could be experienced as a model image (that is, in their intended state, in an intention visible in every part of them even before their actual consumption), no such thing as film history would be needed or possible."3Cherchi Usai's anecdotal and aphoristic book has often been read as a metaphysical and melancholic intervention from someone mourning the slow disappearance of ...

      Abstract: At a 2022 screening of the documentary Finally Got the News (dir. Stewart Bird, Peter Gessner, and René Lichtman, 1970), dissident and activist Donald Abdul Roberts described his first encounter with the striking workers of the Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement (DRUM) in Detroit during the fall of 1968. "I was reading about the drums and I heard the drums," Donald Abdul recalled, explaining that he was riding the bus and reading C. L. R. James's The Black Jacobins when he first encountered the DRUM workers on strike.1 Elaborating further in an interview with Mohammed Elnaiem in 2020, Donald Abdul recalled riding the Chene Street bus past the Dodge Main assembly plant in Hamtramck: "On the bus, I'm reading a part ...

      Abstract: For many of its initial viewers, Finally Got the News (dir. Stewart Bird, Peter Gessner, and René Lichtman, 1970) gave food for thought on the contemporary world, particularly to those who had paid little or no attention to the tens of millions of unwaged and waged workers of non-European origins who have toiled for capitalism in the modern era worldwide, including in the United States.The film maintains a remarkable historical depth of field as it introduces viewers to contemporary industrial conditions through a historical perspective on antebellum African American slavery and persistent discrimination since the Civil War. The film narrative opens onto the plight of African Americans in Detroit in the early 1960s ... Read More

      Abstract: Though not directly affiliated with the League of Revolutionary Black Workers, Dan Georgakas served a crucial role in documenting the struggles of the League, most notably in the now classic coauthored study Detroit: I Do Mind Dying. It is by way of Georgakas's and coauthor Marvin Surkin's study that many contemporary activists have come to learn of the League's precedence in "urban revolution," to borrow from the book's subtitle. Alongside the League's militant workplace organizing, wildcat strikes, and legal battles, Georgakas and Surkin pay special attention to the League's manifold practices of cultural production—from the League-affiliated newspaper Inner City Voice, edited by John Watson, and the various ...

      Abstract: The interviews selected and gathered in the following were conducted by Chris Robé in the process of doing research for his book Breaking the Spell: A History of Anarchist Filmmakers, Videotape Guerrillas, and Digital Ninjas (2017).1 There, Robé charts a decades-long trajectory of radical and autonomous video making, emerging in the various upstarts and dissolutions of New Left organizations around the world, continuing through and against the global ascendancy of neoliberal structural adjustment, and culminating in a variety of twenty-first-century digital activisms that contend with a dramatically transformed political, cultural, technological, and economic landscape. The coherence of such a trajectory in the ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Historical scholarship on Finally Got the News (dir. Stewart Bird, Peter Gessner, and René Lichtman, 1970) has prioritized the production of the film, in large part at the cost of its circulation as a filmic text and political manifesto. No doubt, there is much contemporary merit to parsing the complicated process of producing Finally Got the News (FGtN) and the manifold social contradictions that pervaded its production and inform its signifying registers. Various accounts of the film's production illuminate crucial questions around the political utility of filmmaking within the context of shopfloor organizing, strategic questions that preoccupied and invited much consternation among many of the leaders of the ...

      Abstract: In the long and fraught history of representation, FESPACO's defining mission is to unapologetically recover, chronicle, affirm, and reconstitute the representation of the African continent and its global diaspora of peoples, thereby enunciating in the cinematic, all manner of Pan-African identity, experience, and, in the project of world making, the futurity of the Black world.1These words aptly frame the objectives of this Close-Up: to recover, to chronicle, to affirm, to reimagine even, African/Diasporan women's cinematic world-making, indeed self-making—envisioning the manners in which they devise, create, make, a space, a universe, a domain, a world; within which they may tell/relate their stories—storytelling ...

      Abstract: It makes more sense to begin [a discussion/exhibition/paper/retrospective on Blacks & Cinema] with the 1890s when we were both on the screen and in the auditorium too, and thinking. … But let's not begin in the 1890s. Let's begin in the beginning of our experiments with cinema. That would be the Nile …Perhaps, as an African American, Toni Cade Bambara was inspired by the visual imaginaire of Langston Hughes's poem:I've known rivers:I've known rivers ancient as the world and olderthan the flow of human blood in human veins.My soul has grown deep like the rivers.I bathed in the Euphrates when dawns were young.I built my hut near the Congo and it lulled me to sleep.I looked upon the Nile and raised the ...

  • Part III–Women’s TransAfrican Cinematic Practice and Activism: Mapping
           the Trajectory of an African Women’s Cinematic Consciousness:
           Introduction: Blazing the Trail, Pioneering the Way

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The transAfrican nature of women's cinematic practice, embodying border-crossings, transnational exchanges, interdisciplinary movements, represents a form of collective intellectual and cultural capital, inscribed by intersectional theory-praxis-based discourse: activist, academic, creative, sociopolitical. Hence the notion of a transAfrican aesthetic evolves from the Africa/diaspora reciprocity of artistic, cultural, and political consciousness. The term "transAfrican" emerged in the 1960s to describe an African diaspora imaginary;1 however, the tradition of African/diasporan interconnections has earlier roots, evolving from the exchange and flow of political and cultural discourse among African Americans ...

      Abstract: Within the discursive spaces of the cinematic landscape, find the cultural workers—independent producers, curators, archivists, organizers, media activists, scholars and the many other stakeholders—who have as purpose, to build a legacy, to amass collective intellectual and cultural capital, by creating, archiving, disseminating, curating, preserving, teaching the shared cinematic experiences of the Africas/Diasporas, as well as to uphold the oral traditions through moving image storytelling. And in a rephrasing of the adage of Amadou Hampâté Bâ: when an elder dies, it is as if a film library has burned down—these daring women, custodians of culture, endeavor to ensure that it will not be lost, that it will ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: African women's voices are alternative discourse, affirms Anne-Laure Folly Reimann of Togo. Hence, this conceptual framework that recenters African women's voices, describes a woman-focused standpoint epistemology reflecting both African women's lived experiences and African ways of viewing the world. "I think that we are a bit lost in our international discourse to the extent that we no longer exist. Now we must say something," she insists.1The tenets of an intersectional, alternative discourse expressed by African women reflects this desire to "say something," to contribute to the production of counter-hegemonic knowledge by going beyond the accepted standards, the familiar views and references—on race, gender ...

      Abstract: This section serves to examine the manners of mediating diasporic cinematic experiences and practice across generations and geographies. In women's storytelling of their individual experiences in mediating positionality, subjectivity, social location within the diasporas in which they journey to study, create, share knowledge, and to find a home, one may find intersecting themes, of transnational subjectivities, cinematic identities, collective and negotiated memories. These stories reveal the cinematic imaginary of African women who have voyaged from Africa to study or teach, of the cinematic journeys of identity of those who have migrated to another country, of first-generation African women who were born or were ...

           Who's African Anyway' An Evolving Story

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Since its beginnings in the 1960s, there has been an evolution in African Cinema Studies discourse as well as its relationship with the diaspora—and in particular, the signification of diaspora as a concept, idea, and place. At the same time, "African" itself has become an increasingly contested identity. Hence, in my work on African women in cinema, I have navigated these evolving subjectivities: women of African parents living in the African diasporas, now film professionals asserting their agency, defining on their own terms their relationship with Africa and their birth/host country, even the notion of home and homeland; the emergence of a visible presence of women of non-African ethnicities, born or ...

How do I situate myself' First of all, I am an Arab woman living in Montreal. Yesterday, I was speaking to a friend regarding Africa. I told her, "Well, we don't ask ourselves the question 'What are we''" In my case, it is within the context of immigration that I position myself. The question that drives me the most is, "What kind of cinema will I do'"Yes, I am African, I am from the African continent, it is a part of who I am. At the same time, it is more than a continent that I feel, it is ... Read More

  • Part VI–Mediating Diasporic Cinematic Experiences and Practice: "Do They
           Remember Us'": In Conversation with Shirikiana Aina

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Shirikiana, could you talk about your film Through the Door of No Return (dir. Shirikiana Aina, 1997) and your process in the making of the film'In this film, I go on a personal journey. It is a documentary, but I would probably call it something closer to a docu-journey because it really is a personal journey back to the continent. I use my father's experience as sort of a bridge to get me there, as a child of Africa in the Diaspora looking for her roots or to reconnect.My father traveled to Africa when I was about seventeen and apparently was trying to move to Ghana. Unfortunately, he contracted malaria. It was fatal, and when he came back, he died. I was a budding adult, but we never had a chance to synthesize ... Read More

  • Part VI–Mediating Diasporic Cinematic Experiences and Practice:
           Reflections on a Digital Sankofa Storytelling Experience: In Conversation
           with Jacqueline Nsiah

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Jacqueline, your final master's thesis project in Visual and Media Anthropology at Freie Universität, Berlin is a documentary titled "Returning from exile." Could you talk about what inspired you to focus on this theme'Interesting that you say it is a documentary title, because my initial idea was to make a documentary film but I felt I wasn't ready, yet, I might still do it. "Returning from exile" is about the second-generation Ghanaians born in a European country or in the USA to Ghanaian parents, who decided to "return" or rather to live in Ghana. People like me, my tribe so to say. What inspired me to do the visual/audio website is partly my story, but also, I wanted to create a digital archive to register this ... Read More

  • Part VIII–Reconciling Africas, Identities, Diasporas: A Mirage in the
           Desert' African Women Directors at FESPACO

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Every other year, thousands take to the air from points in Africa, Europe, and the US to head to the Festival Panafricain du Cinéma du Ouagadougou (FESPACO). Braving searing heat and dust rising from the Sahara Desert, the hordes descend on Ouagadougou, or "Ouaga," as it is affectionately called, the capital city of the tiny West African country Burkina Faso (formerly Upper Volta) for the continent's biggest cultural event.Held in alternate years from the Carthage Film Festival in Tunisia, the eight-day FESPACO showcases productions from sub-Saharan Africa and the Diaspora, particularly the Caribbean, United States, and Brazil. Burkina Faso was one of the first West African countries to nationalize film production ... Read More

  • Part VIII–Reconciling Africas, Identities, Diasporas: In the Mouth the
           Teeth Sometimes Bite the Tongue: Reflections on the Women's Meeting at
           FESPACO 1991 and Beyond

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This segment incorporates several women's voices regarding the incident at the Women's Meeting at FESPACO in 1991, excerpted from longer interviews. Though I was not in attendance at FESPACO that year—and am left stunned at the thought of what I would have felt if I had—I immediately heard about the details afterwards and this misunderstanding continued to concern me as I prepared my project on African women in cinema in 1995 to begin the following year, which culminated in the book and film Sisters of the Screen (2002). Hence, three editions later in 1997 at FESPACO, during my interviews with several of the women who attended the meeting, I explained my purpose for wanting to revisit this event and asked them to ...

  • Part VIII–Reconciling Africas, Identities, Diasporas: Reconsidering
           Positionality and Subjectivity within African Cinema Discourse

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As a background in which to reconsider positionality and subjectivity within African cinema discourse, I revisit two seminal works that have framed, black diaspora in general, and black women within these diasporas in particular. Reopening the pages of these oeuvres, written three and four decades ago, presents an occasion to explore the evolution of African diaspora, as legacy, concept, discourse, and practice. At the same time, it puts into relief the notion of black as descriptor for African-ness.In the overview of the pioneering anthology The Black Woman Cross-Culturally (1981), editor Filomina Chioma Steady designates unifying themes deemed pivotal to the experiences of most black women throughout the world: ...
