    Hi, does a version of your book on African cinema exist in English? I bought the recent Italian edition for our library. It looks amazing, and your interview at Cinemafrica made me want to read it even more. Azania is such a great record too. I play it often on my radio show. “Egwu Oyoyo” and “Ile” are favorites. Thank you! Best, Jim

      Oh, wow! I’m just seeing this now. Sorry about the delay in responding. I didn’t know I have such fans like you out there. You made y day.
      To answer your question, No, there is no English version of the edition of the African Cinema that you bought. This Newest version was updated and upgraded by Leonardo DE FRANCESCHI. My original work was also in the Italian language. Thank you also for liking my music.
