African Media Program
Title: African Media Program
Creator: African Studies Center <East Lansing, Mich.>
Abstract: The AMP began in 1978 with four years of work to develop a print compendium, Africa on Film and Videotape, 1982. The compendium lists several thousand productions and provides reviews of more than 700 films and videos, reviewed systematically by African graduate students and American specialists on each country.
In 2002 the African Media Program offers an on-line comprehensive reference guide to approximately 10,000 films, videos, and other audiovisual materials concerning Africa (both Sub-Saharan and North Africa). It includes film and video productions made in Africa and around the world.
This new database incorporates and updates material contained in the 1982 print compendium, adds many new reviews, and provides as complete a citation as possible from a wide variety of sources. [according to site editor's information]
