Wildlife Documentaries in Southern Africa by Ian Glenn

Lavishly illustrated in colour, this is a vividly written and innovative book on wildlife filmmakers in Southern Africa. In the 1970s, Southern Africa became the major locale for African wildlife filmmaking with increasing use of the Kalahari Dessert, Okavango Delta and Kruger Park area. Ian Glenn explains how local filmmakers reached the top of their field globally, producing what has been the most influential South African cultural product. The study draws on many interviews with filmmakers and what they revealed about how and why they made their films.
