Frame by frame II Overview

Frame by Frame II is a major reference guide on African American film professionals. It recognizes African Americans who have contributed their talents to a film industry that has scarcely recognized them. The editors acknowledge those independents who have rejected Hollywood values and set out on their own paths. This volume builds on the earlier Frame by Frame, which included productions through 1978. In order to assure that the 1978 entries are complete, that year is included in this edition. A compilation of information on more than 3000 films, Frame by Frame II includes listings of films and of black casts, directors, executive producers, film composers, performers, producers, screenwriters, and Oscar-award winners and nominees.

Frame by frame II Editorial Reviews


Expanding film participation by African Americans<-->despite continuing constraints-->both on and off-screen warrant this extension project (of the Black Film Center/ Archive, Indiana State U.) of Klotman's 1979 "Frame by Frame<-->A Black Filmography". This is an inclusive rather than evaluative source book for film, video, and television. (TV programs are included only in cases of significant African American involvement.) Films are indexed by black cast, directors, producers, musicians, screenwriters, distributors, archives, and Oscar award winner and nominees. Some visuals would have been welcome.
