------------------ Dear Rachael Langford, Two publications come to my mind, both focusing on anglophone Africa: * Burns, James M. D. _Cinema and Society in the British Empire, 1895-1940._ New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2013. * Reinwald, Brigitte. "'Tonight at the Empire': Cinema and Urbanity in Zanzibar, 1920s to 1960s." _Afrique & Histoire_ 5/2006: 81-109. <http://www.cairn.info/zen.php?ID_ARTICLE=AFHI_005_109> In view of Zanzibar, Reinwald states: "Roughly 55 % of the approximately 260 films imported annually between 1941 and 1949 were US productions, while 35 % came from India. The latter thus superseded UK productions, which now constituted no more than 5 %, while the remaining 5 % were Egyptian and European (continental) films." (p. 22) All the best Felix Schürmann University of Kassel --
