Summary:
"This multiauthor volume seeks to show how slavery in the Transatlantic World has been depicted in a hundred years of film production in the Americas. Rather than emphasizing North American films exclusively, the editors and authors seek to create a dialogic relationship between various filmmakers making movies in and about different countries in the hemisphere. Each contributor concentrates on one film. Among the essays are these: Rudy Alcocer, "Of Slavery and Humanity: Focus, Metaphor and Truth in Werner Herzog's Cobra Verde"; Mamadou Badiane, "Mulattoes and the Challenges of the Third Space in Roble do Olor"; Robert Norrell, "Roots: the Re-making of Africa and Slavery in the American Mind"; Ignacio leaf.
