Companion Encyclopedia of Middle Eastern and North African Film

The films of the Oliver Leaman edited Companion Encyclopedia of Middle Eastern and North African Film.

Cinema has played a significant part in Middle Eastern culture for a long time, but has yet to receive the attention which it deserves. In particular, the richness and complexity of the various cultural traditions which exist in this region require exploration and analysis. /---/ This Companion Encyclopedia will be an invaluable reference tool for students and scholars of film, as well as those involved in Middle Eastern and Central Asian studies.

Omitted or problematic titles are listed in the notes for the first entry.
