Abstract

For purposes of this paper I focus on the cinema in Mozambique, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and South Africa although geographically the region includes countries such as Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Swaziland and Zambia. The paper develops the argument that communication is always linked with power relations and suggests that in the media power and knowledge intersect endlessly.
