Richard Green in South African Film: Forging Creative New Directions

This book largely recounts the lifetime experience of Richard Green, a veteran film and TV producer. Green’s personal narrative is emblematic of the struggles, the negotiations, and the prevailing ideologies competing for position and dominance as the new South Africa began to emerge from the ravages of apartheid (1948-1990). This is a story of how big media capital in the then nascent form of the M-Net pay-tv channel opened a door in 1986 to the television and cinematic future that has since unfolded.
