We have commissioned three articles to contextualise the various strands and themes of
AiM 2008 further.
Kamran Rastegar's article on
Youssef Chahine positions the recently deceased Egyptian filmmaker's work as pioneering and
influential within Arab cinema as a whole.
Trevor Steele Taylor's article on the
AiM After Hours series of late-night screenings explores the provocative
and unusual within African cinema.
Paula Callus's article on African animation shows that animation filmmaking is practised
in Africa in many styles and forms.
