Really useful and interesting

To speak frankly as a US citizen with an interest in Film Studies, I never quite know what the heck is going on in Canadian cinema, nor where I should be looking. So this book fills a serious void for me, and has a diversity of entries, some more academic than others (but almost all good), that offer lucid and interesting introductions to the wealth of visual culture being produced in Canada over the past decades. I really like the essays on Native filmmakers Loretta Todd and Alanis Obomsawin, and think the editors did a great job of casting their net widely.I highly recommend this book, though I wish it were cheaper.
