Gender and Cinema is the first comprehensive look at Kenya's Film Industry. It traces the history of film making in Kenya, from the perspective of native filmmakers participation in the enterprise. It also explores genre discourses for the industry and its operational dynamics. Finally, it mediates gender dialogues as conveyed in four selected Riverwood films and analyzed in this work. The author argues that this clearly comedy-driven Kenya's film industry is fragmented and without clear united focus. Further, it operates on shoe-string budget and paced out technological tools. And in the area of gender representation, Riverwood films alienate the female character in a vast but consistent manner. However, this work is like an observer's memo, inviting many other voices to the dialogue.
