Need to watch films to make more sense
Third World Film Making and the West by Roy Armes, is one of those books I wish I had read while doing my thesis in graduate school. The film references are amazing. Sadly though, I haven't heard of most the directors/filmmakers Armes writes about. The further I read the more I realize that I must see these films in order to make the reading more worth while and get a proper education in film as Armes intends his book to provide. I will now go to the New York Public Library and see what I find. I will post after watching a film.
